We are working with Traditional Owners to prepare Cultural Heritage Management Plans for each site. These plans assess the potential impact of projects on Aboriginal cultural heritage and outline ways to protect cultural heritage before, during and after construction.
These plans are required under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 (Vic.) because these floodplains are areas of Aboriginal cultural heritage sensitivity.
Traditional Owners have cultural, spiritual, and economic connections to land, water and resources through their relationship with Country. Traditional Owners have managed land and water sustainably over thousands of generations.
