Detailed Information:
The freehold land that is the subject of this agreement is to be granted in fee simple to the Port Curtis Coral Coast Entity. The land is to be dedicated for park and recreation purposes; strategic land management purposes; and a public hall. This ILUA includes agreement that 'future acts' may be done. The parties also agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to future acts, as the alternative consultation provisions are to be followed instead. 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.
