Introducing the NSWALC Strategic Plan Supplement 2023-2026

28 June, 2023

The New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) is pleased to make the NSWALC Strategic Plan Supplement 2023-2026 (the Supplement) available to the Land Rights Network.

NSWALC would like to thank Local Aboriginal Land Councils and Aboriginal Owners for providing their input and feedback into the development of the Supplement.

The Supplement has been approved by the NSWALC Council.


NSWALC’s Strategic Plan Supplement 2023-26 details our key strategies and targets for achieving NSWALC’s long-term objectives and goals set out in our Strategic Plan 2022-2026.


NSWALC’s Strategic Plan 2022-2026 (the Strategic Plan) sets out our agenda to maximise the social, cultural, economic and political potential of our land and people. It provides the foundation to make NSWALC’s visions and aspirations a reality and reflects our objectives to improve, protect and foster the best interests of Aboriginal peoples in NSW. 

NSWALC’s goals over the five years of the Strategic Plan are to:

  • Secure Our Land and Water Rights
  • Protect Our Culture and Heritage
  • Pursue Economic Independence and Prosperity for Our Peoples 
  • Support Our People 
  • Secure Our Future 


The Strategic Plan and Strategic Plan Supplement serve as NSWALC’s Community, Land and Business Plan in accordance with section 137A of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 NSW (ALRA). 

This approach integrates NSWALC’s budget and planning, and structures reporting to Council and the Network around the Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan Supplement 2023-2026 complements the Strategic Plan over three years rather than annually, as with previous Supplements. This timeframe provides a greater ability to strategise and plan ahead, more efficient use of resources across a three-year period and greater visibility for the NSWALC Council.

We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
