In this time OzArk has worked on a range of projects from small, residential subdivision assessments through to major state significant projects with complex community engagement and regulatory pathways.
Assessment types range from visual inspections under the NSW Due Diligence Code of Practice, archaeological surveys under the NSW Code of Practice, preparing Statements of Heritage Impact for significant historic places, developing management and conservation plans, and undertaking archaeological excavations at significant Aboriginal and historic sites.
OzArk has excellent community consultation skills and can prepare cultural values assessments and undertake historical heritage studies. OzArk has the breadth of experience to peer review documentation, offer best practice advice, and provide expert witness services in heritage related matters.
