There are about 70 Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs) currently registered in WA, and the level of resourcing available to these organisations varies significantly. Some can house their own internal heritage teams, while others have no staff at all and rely on up to just $50,000 of funding from the Federal Government per year to meet their basic compliance requirements.


The new laws will place significant administrative burdens on PBCs, so they will need ongoing funding to establish their heritage teams and meet their statutory requirements.
