Aboriginal heritage due diligence impact assessments for:
Northern Beaches, Lane Cove, North Sydney, Ku-ring-gai  and Willoughby Councils

"Aboriginal Heritage Due Diligence Impact Assessments" (wording varies between Councils) on Sydney’s North Shore address requirements set by the Aboriginal Heritage Office (AHO) who review DAs for the Northern Beaches, Ku-ring-gai, North Sydney, Willoughby, and Lane Cove, Councils. An assessment is typically required if development work is proposed in proximity to known sites, exposed sandstone that might have rockshelters or engraved rock art, or near the shoreline where Aboriginal shell middens might occur.

In the event that a due diligence assessment finds that harm to Aboriginal heritage sites is unlikely, the report can be submitted to the relevant Council allowing the DA to progress and can additionally provide a a defence against prosecution in the event of any unanticipated harm during the course of the proposed work (through the Due Diligence Code of Practice for the Protection of Aboriginal Objects in New South Wales empowered by the National Parks and Wildlife Act).
