The Member for Dubbo Troy Grant today joined Environment and Heritage Minister Robyn Parker in encouraging locals to attend a forum in Dubbo that will canvas changes to Aboriginal cultural heritage legislation.

The forum to be held on July 10 at the Dubbo RSL Club between 1.30 – 3.30pm, will provide an opportunity for feedback on the proposed changes to the legilsation while presenting a comparison of the NSW Aboriginal heritage system with other Australian legislative systems.

The Dubbo forum is one of 11 such forums to be held across the State from Queanbeyan to Coffs Harbour and Broken Hill.

“Aboriginal culture and heritage provide important links between the past and present and is an essential part of cultural identity, connection and a sense of belonging," said Mr Grant.

 “The NSW Government wants to get this consultation process right by ensuring that the community are given ample opportunities to be involved," Minister Parker said.

“Something as significant as Aboriginal cultural heritage ought not be diluted within legislation relating primarily to the protection of plants and animals."

Information on the forums has been sent to community and stakeholder groups across NSW, and is also available at
