New lease for Cultural Centre

aboriginal cultural signing of lease

An important day for the Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Mittagong.

The centre will be signing a 99 year lease with the Illawarra Local Aboriginal Land Council and Wingecarribee Councillor Larry Whipper says it should be an historic occasion.

It's hoped the agreement will improve longer term outcomes for a number of services including mental health, dental and optometry.

There has been some division about the new lease, but Councillor Whipper says it's essential that all parties work together.

The lease signing will be taking place at 4pm.
