Developing a plan will:
- inform the department’s review of existing policy frameworks to identify opportunities for greater Aboriginal access and ownership of water
- provide information to Aboriginal communities to make it easier to navigate the licensing framework to access and use water for cultural purposes.
The department encourages communities that have access to various water sources and types, including regulated and unregulated water sources, springs and groundwater sources to register their interest in developing a CWP.
Register your interest in developing a CWP
Aboriginal communities are encouraged to register their interest in developing a CWP. The department’s Aboriginal Water Program and consultants will work with communities to complete their CWP and guide them through the process to ensure their ambitions for cultural water are recognised.
