Submit a Request when purchasing property, beginning development, exploration or land clearing to find out if any Sacred Sites are currently registered or recorded in the location.
When you apply for an Authority Certificate, on-site consultations with Aboriginal custodians are carried out to identify and record any Sacred Sites in the area and any conditions to be observed to protect these sites during the conduct of works.
A Registered Sacred Site is given the highest protection in the NT. As a custodian of a Sacred Site you can request Site Registration and information you provide about the site will be presented to the AAPA board for consideration.
The Board and staff of the Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority wish all of our many wonderful stakeholders and their families a very merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.
A new initiative by the Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority is to provide basic performance statistics on a regular basis.
