Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management - Challenges, Changes & Perspectives - 6 Jun 2013
Thursday 6 June 2013
5.30pm - 8.30pm
One Spring Street (Mezzanine Level) Melbourne
The EIANZ in conjunction with Biosis invites you to a seminar on Victoria’s Cultural Heritage Management Plan (CHMP) process as experienced from different perspectives.
Victoria’s Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 (AHA) has been in operation since 2007. The legislation and regulation introduced a systematic methodology for up-front assessment, management and protection, standing in contrast to the previous,back-ended heritage management system. The AHA requirements have often surprised proponents because of its associated costs and timeframes. This seminar will consider industry case studies and explore the difficulties, advantages and mechanisms of process and compliance from various perspectives. Given the state government has recently reviewed the legislation there will also be a discussion of the proposed changes and the implications of these.
