I (name of person seeking to undertake Drought Related Dredging - “the Applicant”)

…………………………………………..…………………………….…………..,

have applied to (name of Council)

………………………………………………………………………………….….

pursuant to the Development Act, 1993 (SA) to undertake Drought Related Dredging,

and, if approval is granted, I agree to conduct the dredging so approved in accordance

with the following protocols (which have been agreed between the Ngarrindjeri and

the State):

•     The Government has adopted a process of approval of applications for persons
      intending to undertake Drought Related Dredging, which includes referral of the
      Development Application by the Government Project Co-ordinator to the
      Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator by facsimile within seventy two hours notice
      of commencement of the Drought Related Dredging;
•     Upon receipt of the EPA Checklist, the Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator shall
      review the documentation and -
      (a)     advise the Government Project Co-ordinator in writing (by facsimile)
              whether monitors will be allocated and, if so, the names and contact
              details (including mobile phone numbers) of those monitors; and
      (b)     if he has any concerns arising from the proposed Drought Related
              Dredging activity, contact the Government Project Co-ordinator to
              discuss those concerns.
•     Ngarrindjeri persons may “monitor” the Drought Related Dredging; that is,
      Ngarrindjeri persons may observe activity being undertaken as part of the
      Drought Related Dredging for the purpose of reducing the risk of damage to or
      interference with Aboriginal Sites, Objects or Remains.
•     In the event that a person monitoring the Drought Related Dredging observes
      what he or she considers to his or her own knowledge and belief may be
      evidence of a site disturbing activity which may be or lead to damage to or
      interference with Aboriginal Sites, Objects or Remains, he or she shall notify a
      person supervising the activity to “stop” the activity and thereafter will
      immediately contact the Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator and request that he
      attend the site.
•     The Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator will attend the site, along with an
      anthropological or archaeological Specialist if the Ngarrindjeri Project Co-
      ordinator considers such is necessary, as soon as reasonably practicable after
      being notified and liaise with the site supervisor.
•   If, in the opinion of the Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator, the find is considered
    to be an Aboriginal Site, Object or Remains, the Ngarrindjeri Project
    Coordinator will immediately notify the Government Project Officer.
•   The Government Project Co-ordinator and the Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator
    will discuss any proposals for the management and protection of the Aboriginal
    Site, Object or Remains in accordance with Ngarrindjeri tradition.
•   Upon being notified of a discovery of an Aboriginal Site, Object or Remains,
    the Government Project Co-ordinator will immediately notify the Minister
    responsible for the administration of the Aboriginal Heritage Act. If human
    remains are discovered the Government Project Officer will immediately notify
    the police.
•   The Drought Related Dredging must not be resumed in the vicinity of the find
    until agreement is reached between the Ngarrindjeri and the Government for the
    preservation or management of the Aboriginal Site, Object or Remains.
•   The Government Project Officer is Mr. Steve Ward. Mr. Ward is contactable
    by telephone on (08) 8226 0056 or by way of facsimile on (08) 8226 0060 or by
    way of email (steve.ward@saugov.sa.gov.au).
•   The Ngarrindjeri Project Co-ordinator is Mr Thomas Trevorrow. Mr Trevorrow
    is contactable by telephone on (08) 8575 1557, or by way of facsimile on (08)
    8575 1448.
