On 27 September 2019, EDO Tasmania made a submission to the statutory review of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1975 (Tas) (Review). EDO appreciates the opportunity that has been afforded to it to make the following further submission to the Review.

This further submission does not seek to repeat the content of our previous relevant submissions, rather, it is directed at addressing a number of important issues that have arisen since our previous submission.

In making this submission, we acknowledge that we cannot and do not speak on behalf of First Nations peoples. We make the following comments as experts in planning and environmental law with experience in seeking to protect First Nations and Tasmanian Aboriginal / palawa cultural heritage through the law.
