Is there any known Aboriginal heritage in the Application Area?

    The Application Area contains extensive recorded Aboriginal heritage, including Aboriginal ancestral burials, culturally modified trees, campsites and artefacts. The Gawler River (Kadlitparri), an important Kaurna cultural site, intersects the northern boundary of the northern Application Area.

    The Application Area also contains three areas identified by the Applicant’s heritage consultant as Heritage Impact Mitigation Areas (HIMAs), due to their high likelihood of containing sub-surface archaeological material. 

    See the map of the Application Area showing Aboriginal heritage and HIMAs.

    For detailed information about Aboriginal heritage within the Application Area, as well as the HIMAs and the Applicant’s proposed measures to manage Aboriginal heritage during the Project, see the Consultation Information Pack.

    Will there be a public meeting to discuss the Project?

    Yes. Traditional Owners and Aboriginal parties with an interest in the matter are invited to attend a public meeting about the Project from 6:00 pm on Monday 14 August 2023 at the Riverlea Sales and Discovery Centre located at 9 Bonnin Crescent, Riverlea Park SA 5120 (off Riverlea Boulevard)

    A light supper will be provided for attendees during that meeting. If you wish to attend, for catering purposes please RSVP to AAR as soon as possible.

    Will I be notified of the Minister’s decision?

    Traditional Owners and Aboriginal parties who provide feedback, a submission, or simply request AAR to notify them of the Minister’s decision during the consultation, will be notified once the Minister has decided the application. The outcome of the Minister’s decision will also be published on YourSAy.
