Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Land Management Agreement

If there is a comprehensive management plan for a park or reserve, an ACHLMA may be completed to protect and manage Aboriginal cultural heritage during the necessary land management activities. The ACHLMA may be part of the cultural heritage management component of the management plan, as the legal authority for carrying out works for which an authorization for cultural heritage may be required in another way under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006. For more information, see Report a possible Aboriginal place or object. The introduction of Aboriginal cultural heritage management agreements is a unique opportunity for public land managers to negotiate with each registered Aboriginal party a standard form of agreement that perfectly balances the needs of public land managers with the need to protect indigenous cultural heritage. We are pleased to assist you in negotiating and preparing a standard agreement with a registered Aboriginal party. .
