Council has implemented strict protocols to ensure we comply with directions issued by government in relation to managing the COVID 19 risk. These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Some non-essential services have ceased altogether, others are still in operation but due to social distancing have added levels of complexity. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.
Australian Museum Business Services (AMBS) was commissioned by Tenterfield Shire Council (Council) to prepare an Aboriginal Heritage Study for Tenterfield Local Government Area (LGA). The heritage study will inform future management of Aboriginal cultural heritage within the existing relevant New South Wales (NSW) and Commonwealth Statutory frameworks. The aim of this Study is to identify places of significance, record those places and develop recommendations for their management and conservation, which will assist Council to develop strategies to manage Aboriginal sites and places and develop a protocol for ongoing Aboriginal community liaison.
