The area of the ILUA is defined as Pingala (NTP 5006), located within the northern part of Phillip Creek Station (NNTP 408). The registered owner of this land is the Karlantijpa North Aboriginal Land Trust. The land is represented on survey map S96/036, and abuts the southern boundary of NTP 2845. The ILUA is not located within an incorporated local government area, but falls within the Yapakurlangu Regional Council.

Legal Reference: National Native Title Tribunal File No.: DI2004/01
Subject Matter:Land Use | Land Transaction | Native Title | Recognition of Traditional Rights and Interests | Future Act
Summary Information:
The Pingala CLA Indigenous Land Use Agreement (the ILUA) allows a section of a pastoral lease to be excised by the Northern Territory Government for the purpose of creating an Aboriginal Community Living Area (CLA). Without the ILUA, the transaction in the land may have been subject to the future act and right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth).

This type of land transaction falls under Part 8 of the Pastoral Land Act 1992 (NT) and section 46(1A) of the Lands Acquisition Act 1978 (NT). Several other ILUAs have been made to create Aboriginal community living areas in the Northern Territory.
Detailed Information:
Under the ILUA, the parties agree to the acquisition of land from the pastoral lease, and the grant of an estate in fee simple for a community living area. The parties consent to this action, regardless of whether it is a future act.

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