Cultural Awareness

VHM acknowledges the Traditional Landowners and will respect the rights of the traditional custodians of the land.

The Project’s impact on cultural heritage is being explored, and VHM is committed to minimising impacts to heritage values and ensuring effective communication with Aboriginal groups through the development of a Cultural Heritage Management Plan, including commissioning of heritage surveys. VHM recognises the heritage values of the wetlands and river systems to the east and west of the Project area. VHM is currently consulting with Aboriginal Victoria and with the Traditional Owners of the land. Non-indigenous cultural heritage in the Project area is also being investigated.
