Project:

Community members are invited to view the Draft Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for the City of Busselton.

Over the last 3 years the City has been working with members of the Aboriginal community to develop a plan that provides practical and meaningful steps toward reconciliation. The aspirations and ideas of Aboriginal individuals, groups and associations have informed the development of the Draft RAP and we sincerely thank those people who have contributed to the process thus far.

During June and July 2019 over 400 copies of the Draft RAP were distributed to the Aboriginal community for comment. The City now invites the broader community to view the Draft RAP and to provide feedback.
