Review of the Aboriginal and Dual Naming Policy - Consultation and Stakeholder Feedback

On 30 November 2017, the Review of the Aboriginal and Dual Naming Policy Issues Paper was released for public comment. The deadline for submissions in response to this paper was 22 December 2017.

The Issues Paper contained 12 questions identifying matters for consideration by the review. Tasmanian Aboriginal people, Aboriginal community organisations and groups, local councils, other interested parties and members of the public were invited and encouraged to participate and respond to the Issues Paper.

On 1 June 2018, a Consultation & Stakeholder Feedback Report with accompanying submissions was published on the Department of Premier and Cabinet website and distributed to review respondents, who were invited to make further comment on the Report.

This Consultation & Stakeholder Feedback Report summarises the responses to the questions outlined within the Issues Paper as well as key points raised during consultation. This Report should be read in conjunction with the Issues Paper. Thank you to all individuals and organisations who read the Issues Paper and participated in the process by making a submission.

The Report does not seek to support any particular idea or proposal, nor does it aim to show any preference for specific ideas. It aims to present propositions contained in the Issues Paper on the basis of comments received through the consultation process.

Public Submissions - Round 2

A second round of public consultations (on draft amendments to the Policy) opened on 24 October 2018 and concluded on 11 January 2019.
