Change is looming in Western Australia


Under the new Western Australian Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act, mining, infrastructure and land development projects must ensure their heritage systems are in step with the latest legislative requirements.

Some organisations may lack the regulatory knowledge or resources to introduce the necessary changes. Our team will quickly help you understand the steps you need to take to transition your heritage systems and comply with your legal obligations and social responsibility.
