Prior to the development of the project, local governments are encouraged to follow key elements of the NSHA`s cultural heritage, including: Aboriginal heritage service providers are generally a business or qualified person in a discipline directly relevant to the management of Aboriginal heritage, such as anthropology, archaeology, history or associated discipline and/or anyone with cultural authority and heritage knowledge for the country concerned. The model contract defines the obligations of the Aboriginal legacy service provider when conducting an Aboriginal heritage investigation under the NSHA. The contract reflects relevant NSHA commitments to ensure that the results are consistent with the requirements set out in the NSHA. If land users do not choose to follow the NSHA, it is recommended that cultural heritage surveys be conducted based on key elements of the NSHA to ensure a consistent approach throughout the Southwest. This approach would involve recommending the inclusion of an NSHA in an NSHA and an “activity communication” published under the NSHA where there is a risk that an activity will “act” illegally (e.g. B, by eliminating, damaging, destroying or changing in one way or another) of an Aboriginal site. The VA government`s duty of care guidelines for Aboriginal heritage included in the NSHA contain guidelines for assessing potential risks to Aboriginal heritage. If our works have a negligible influence on Aboriginal heritage, we consult with the respective traditional owners and an application under Regulations 7 and 10 of the Aboriginal Heritage Regulations 1974 is submitted for approval to the Registrar of Aboriginal Sites (Regulation 10). If the impact may be significant, an application under Section 18 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (section 18 approval) is submitted to the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs for approval after conducting a cultural heritage investigation. For more information on aboriginal cultural heritage authorizations, see our annual report. As of June 8, 2015 (implementation of ILUAs), the NSHA must be completed by users of the VA government territory if an investigation into the Aboriginal heritage of the settlement area is required and there is no existing agreement on cultural heritage. WALGA and SWALSC recognize, however, that a consistent approach to Aboriginal heritage in the residential area is important to all.
Historical sites (sometimes called European sites) are places or objects considered important because of their aesthetic, historical, scientific or social properties.
