Our colleagues at Government Architect NSW have developed the ‘Connecting with Country’ Draft Framework to improve planning, design, and delivery of built environment projects in NSW. The document aims to help all of us – Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people – to work together collectively, respectfully, and with open minds to unite our complementary knowledge.
We support this framework and expect that all major applications for changes to State Heritage items and other sites with Aboriginal values will be guided by these policies.
More information is on the Government Architect NSW website, including a discussion paper, webinars and an opportunity to Have your Say.

On 10 March 2021 the State Memorial took place for Jack Mundey AO, the former trade union leader and conservationist who led Sydney’s Green Bans movement during the 1970s. During this time union members refused to work on certain projects earmarked for demolition and high-rise development. Jack’s leadership, tenacity and vision saved many of Sydney’s inner heritage areas including The Rocks, Woolloomooloo, parts of Centennial Park, The Botanic Gardens, Aboriginal housing in Redfern and more.
Heritage NSW and the Heritage Council of NSW acknowledge Jack Mundey’s legacy in standing up for many heritage places and stories, to ensure their protection for future generations.
