    Summary Information:

    The Yorke Peninsula Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was signed between the Narungga Nation, the South Australian Government and four Yorke Peninsula Councils following 18 months of negotiations.

    The ILUA clarifies the way that native title interacts with local government in the Yorke Peninsula region.

    The agreement recognises the Narungga People as traditional owners in the Yorke Peninsula region and outlines a compensation package.

    The ILUA creates a regime for when and where acts can be done which may affect native title and cultural heritage. This relates especially to the development of infrastructure. The ILUA also includes an Aboriginal heritage protection protocol.

    Under the ILUA, a committee to work on local issues for the Narungga Nation has been created. Employment, economic development, cultural recognition and service delivery in the region are all part of the Committee's mandate.

    The Yorke Peninsula ILUA was the first South Australian Indigenous Land Use Agreement between an Indigenous group and local governments. As such, it may form the basis for future agreements in local government areas.

    Detailed Information:

    The ILUA provides the consent of the parties to future acts and validation of future acts that may already have been done by the State and Councils in respect of the ILUA area.

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

    Without this agreement, the such acts would have been invalid and the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) would apply. Under this act any activity, such as a grant of land, that may affect native title rights is defined as a 'future act' and must comply with the future act provisions of the act in order to be valid.

    The ILUA also provides for the surrender and extinguishment of native title rights and interests relating to certain parts of the ILUA area. The Narungga People surrender to the State all of their native title rights and interests in relation to the area set out in Schedule 5, being all Crown Land and all dedicated lands, as shown on the map attached to Schedule 1.

    The consent of the parties to future acts is conditional upon the State or Council's compliance with clauses 5 and 6 of the Agreement.

    The ILUA may be removed from the register upon application by any of the parties who may wish to terminate the agreement. Consent to any future acts ceases to apply should this occur.
