Our goal is to avoid, minimize and reduce our negative effects on Aboriginal heritage wherever possible. Activities will be audited in accordance with DPLH due diligence guides with our internal Aboriginal heritage risk assessment process. If this process identifies a potential risk of impact on Aboriginal heritage, further studies will be conducted. Search for „Registered Sites“ or „Other Heritage Sites“ with the drop-down category „Native Title SW Settlement ILUA“ – AHIS contains the register of Aboriginal sites and objects. The VA Government encourages all land users to consider the use of the NSHA when their planned land use activity takes place within the residential area and a study of Aboriginal heritage is required. It is recommended that an NSHA be established and issue an „activity notice“ under the NSHA when there is a risk that an activity will illegally „affect“ an Aboriginal site (for example. B by excavation, degradation, destruction or modification in any way). The VA Aboriginal Government Due Diligence Guides, which have been included in the NSHA, provide instructions for assessing potential risks to Aboriginal heritage. Prior to the development of the proposal, local governments are encouraged to respect the main elements of the NSHA`s legacy, including: DMIRS is required to apply the heritage condition set out in clause 18 of Annex 10 of each ILUA when oil ownership is granted. The condition requires tenure holders to enter into an inheritance contract or NSHA with the corresponding Noongar Agreement group before they can exercise any rights. If it is not possible to avoid an impact on Aboriginal heritage, we will consult with the traditional owners and obtain the agreement. The work is not being continued without the permission of the Registrar of Aboriginal Sites or the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs.

If our works have negligible influence on Aboriginal cultural heritage, we will consult with the appropriate traditional owners and an application in accordance with Regulations 7 and 10 of the Aboriginal Heritage Regulations 1974 is submitted for approval by the Registrar of Aboriginal Sites (Regulation 10). If the impact may be significant, an application is made for approval by the Aboriginal Minister, pursuant to section 18 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (section 18 approval), following a cultural heritage study. For more information on Aboriginal heritage authorizations, see our annual report. Land users of the VA government, including departments, authorities and furniture companies, are required to enter into an NSHA with the relevant Noongar Agreement group, unless they have already concluded an agreement on existing cultural heritage, when conducting an Aboriginal heritage survey in an ILUA area. Historical heritage sites (sometimes referred to as European sites) are places or objects considered important because of their aesthetic, historical, scientific or social characteristics.. . . .
