Aboriginal heritage

The Department of Indigenous Affairs has advised of the existence of registered Aboriginal Heritage sites affecting the Burswood Peninsula and East Perth foreshore.

An approval under Section 18 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act will be required for any construction on the site.

Liaison is occurring (through the Department of Premier and Cabinet) with the Department of Indigenous Affairs and the South West Land and Sea Council, to ensure the protection of registered sites of significance.

The State Solicitor's Office advises that Native Title has been extinguished over the site.

The Whadjuk Working Group has been established to work closely with the Noongar community throughout the life of the project.
