Draft Amendment No 16

Council at its meeting on 12 September 2017 resolved to publicly exhibit a draft amendment to the Fairfield City Wide Development Control Plan (FCW DCP) to include an additional Appendix H, regarding Aboriginal Heritage Management in Fairfield City. The proposed appendix explains what Aboriginal Heritage is, outlines the existing statutory framework that protects Aboriginal Heritage from development impact, informs applicants of Council’s procedures for managing Aboriginal Heritage during the Assessment process and that an Aboriginal Heritage Assessment report may be required as part of this process. The information proposed to be included in the FCW DCP seeks to ensure that development takes into account the significance of Aboriginal heritage, and that no Aboriginal objects are harmed in the development process.

The draft FCW DCP amendments are on exhibition for a minimum of 28 days from 25 October 2017 to 22 November 2017 inclusive.

A copy of the draft FCW DCP and Council report with supporting information can also be viewed in hard copy at Councils Administration Centre at 86 Avoca Road, Wakeley during office hours 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday where your questions can be answered in person.
