Proposed WA Aboriginal Heritage Act 2020 to reform the outdated 1972 Aboriginal Heritage Act

The Department of Planning, Land and Heritage (DPLH) consultation page regarding the Aboriginal
Cultural Heritage Bill 2020 (the Bill) states that:

…This new legislation will replace the outdated Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 concluding more than two years of consultation with Aboriginal people, industry representatives, heritage professionals and the Western Australian community.
The Bill establishes a modern approach to protecting Aboriginal cultural heritage in Western Australia that will reset the relationship between land users and Traditional Owners and transform how Aboriginal cultural heritage is identified, managed and conserved.
