Despite the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Bill 2021 (ACH Bill) being passed through WA Parliament in late 2021, Traditional Owners remain determined to have their voices heard on how the act – and, importantly, the extensive associated codes, guidelines and regulations in development – will impact their significant sites.


In the true spirit of partnership, Aboriginal people, government, industry and other relevant stakeholders should be working together together to co-design the regulations, policies and processes to support the implementation of the new laws. The State Government is currently going through this process.
