Cultural managements

Have your say on Queensland’s cultural heritage laws

AgForce is seeking members’ views on the state government’s management of cultural heritage in response to the recently released options paper.

The paper aims to finalize the long-awaited Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships (DATSIP) review of Queensland’s Cultural Heritage Act and outlines proposed changes that will affect agricultural landowners.

The three main focus areas are:

  • Provide opportunities to enhance the protection of cultural heritage, including through increased consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • Reframing the Definitions of “Aboriginal Party” and “Torres Strait Islander Party”
  • Promote the leadership of First Nations peoples in cultural heritage management and decision-making

DATSIP invites you to provide feedback by responding to the survey or submitting a more detailed submission.

AgForce is also interested in hearing your views and comments on the proposed changes to help inform our submission.
