Aboriginal cultural heritage focus for Bega Valley Shire Council


Only a few days left to have your say on the newly written Aboriginal heritage chapter, incorporating the cultural heritage landscape map; all part of Councils development control plan.

The cultural heritage landscape map shows which parts of the Bega Valley are more likely to contain areas of significance for Aboriginal people – in many cases these are places like ridgelines, areas adjacent to creeks and rivers, caves, rock formations and coastal headlands.

This newly written chapter spells out everything that needs to be considered around development with respect to Aboriginal cultural heritage.

The new chapter and mapping layer can be viewed by visiting www.begavalley.nsw.gov.au/haveyoursay.

To give your feedback leave a comment on the Have Your Say page; provide a written submission via email to [email protected]; or send in a written submission via the post to PO Box 492, Bega NSW 2550.

The exhibition period ends this Sunday, 2 August 2020.

Well done to Graham Moore and his team for this long overdue initiative.
