The ILUA covers the land comprised in Lot 141 in the Town of Mataranka. This falls within the Mataranka Community Government and the Garrak-Jarru Regional Council.
Legal Status: Registered with the National Native Title Tribunal
Legal Reference: National Native Title Tribunal File No.: DI2004/017
Subject Matter:Future Act | Health and Community Services | Land Use | Native Title
Summary Information:
The Mataranka Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) provides the consent of the Native Title Parties to the development and use of a community hall in the town of Mataranka.

Under the agreement, a Crown lease will be granted to the 'Better Half Club' for the development and use of a multi purpose community hall and ancillary purposes. A four year Crown lease will be granted for development purposes, followed by a Crown lease of 41 years. At the end of 41 years, the lease may be extended for a further 10 years.

The ILUA also acknowledges that the Minister for Lands, Planning And Environment has certain powers to modify the lease according to the Crown Lands Act 1992 (NT). If the Northern Land Council and the Parties give written consent, any such actions by the Minister will be authorised, regardless of whether this constitutes a 'future act'.

The parties agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply, as the alternative consultation provisions have been followed instead.
