AHIP Public Register

This public register lists Aboriginal Heritage Impact Permit applications, including permits that have been issued, varied, transferred, surrendered, suspended and revoked under sections 90P and 188F of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.

The register provides information on all Aboriginal Heritage Impact Permit related decisions processed and applications received after 1 October 2010. Decisions processed and applications received prior to June 2021 are located on the AHIP Public Register Archive. All decisions processed and applications received after this date may be found on the AHIP Public Register 2021-2022. This list is updated regularly.

The register may be used to identify AHIP applications that have been submitted and any decisions made in relation to those applications in NSW.

For example, if you want to undertake an Aboriginal cultural heritage assessment in a particular location in NSW, you can search the AHIP Public Register to determine if previous applications have been submitted and what decisions were made in relation to those. You can also see if there are current AHIPs and applications for new AHIPs that may affect your assessment.
