Aboriginal Heritage Plan

Council is preparing an Aboriginal Heritage and Cultural Plan for all our suburbs – Banksmeadow, Botany, Daceyville, Eastgardens, Eastlakes, Hillsdale, Mascot and Pagewood.  And to make this important plan successful, we need the help and involvement of the Aboriginal community within our City and surrounding areas.  

The Plan has a range of objectives such as identifying how to protect significant sites and places to outlining better ways to recognise, respect and celebrate Aboriginal culture and the community. Council has appointed a consultant to work with us and we’re also being assisted in contacting and meeting with the Aboriginal community by a local resident, Ms Barbara Keeley-Simms.  The involvement, ideas and input of the local Aboriginal community are critical to the plan’s development, contents and ultimately its effectiveness.

Please help out and have your say, by contacting: Alan Ginns (Gondwana Consulting) on 9913 3720 or at gwanacon@tpg.com.au or for more details about the plan contact Ms Suzanne Wren at Council on 9366 3556.
