Cultural Heritage Assessment

By undertaking a Cultural Heritage Assessment (CHA) we provide an expert opinion as to whether the Aboriginal Heritage Regulations 2007 have been correctly applied to your project.

A CHA can be prepared as part of your due diligence process, or as expert evidence prepared for presentation to Council or VCAT. We can act on your behalf as expert witnesses at VCAT or panel hearings. 

Demonstrating that a CHMP is not required will result in significant time and cost savings for your project.

We have prepared  more than 250 CHAs, over 90% of which have been accepted at local council or VCAT without requiring further investigation.
