Activities in culturally sensitive landscapes can cause significant harm to Aboriginal Cultural Heritage. The Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 prescribed the circumstances in which a Cultural Heritage Management Plan will be required.
A Cultural Heritage Management Plan is a written report containing the results of the assessment and recommendations for measures to be taken before, during and after an activity to manage and protect Aboriginal Cultural Heritage in an area.
A simple way to check whether a Cultural Heritage Management Plan is required for a proposed activity is to use the Aboriginal Heritage Planning Tool and follow the prompts.

It is advisable that this checklist is printed and submitted with the Cultural Heritage Declaration Form in an Application for Planning Permit.
