Frequently asked questions
What is the role of the Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board?
The main role of the Board (often referred to as the GKTOLMB) is to coordinate the development of a joint management plan by working closely with the Gunaikurnai people, joint management partners and consulting with all groups and individuals who express an interest.
How does the Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board (GKTOLMB) differ from the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC)?
The Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) is the recognised Traditional Owner Group entity representing Gunaikurnai people under the Traditional Owners Settlement Act.
The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board (GKTOLMB) is a body corporate set up to help make sure the knowledge and culture of Gunaikurnai people is recognised in management of the JM parks.
While GLaWAC and the GKTOLMB are separate organisations, they are working closely together in partnership on developing the joint management plan, along with Parks Victoria and the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
How can you have your say?
We’ll be releasing a draft plan to the whole community to review later in 2017.
We’re planning to hold information sessions around the region and anyone with an interest will be invited to come along.
Visit our website or social media pages for regular updates or keep an eye out in your local newspapers for details when the plan is released.
