At its meeting of 28 August 2020, Council considered four permit applications. Council determined that, whilst it remains opposed to the destruction of Aboriginal heritage, it did not oppose the Minister granting two of the four applications, with the remaining two being referred to the proponents for further action.
A presentation of the new Aboriginal Heritage Council website also featured at the meeting. The website can be found at https://www.aboriginalheritage.tas.gov.au/council-site and will include monthly updates of Council meetings.
Jason Jacobi, Deputy Secretary (Parks and Wildlife Services), was the guest presenter at the meeting providing Council members with the opportunity for feedback on the draft Tourism Management Plan for the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA).
The Aboriginal Heritage Council will meet again on 25 September 2020.
