Bill to Support Indigenous Representation in Decision-making Along the Yarra

Yarra River Protection (Wilip-gin Birrarung murron) Bill 2017 (Vic)

The bill seeks to develop the Yarra Strategic Plan and establish the Birrarung Council to oversee the implementation of the plan and 10 year updates. Birrarung Council will be made up of traditional owners, along with industry and community representatives and will work to provide a voice for local indigenous interests and the river itself. The bill treats the river and associated land as one entity and is written partially in the language as traditional owners.
