Native Title Provisions
The Extract notes that there are no statements within the Agreement of the kind which are mentioned in 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under these sections are not triggered by this agreement.
This means that the ILUA does not:
- provide consent for the doing of any acts by
non-native title parties;
- effect the right of the native title parties to negotiate with non-native title parties proposing to undertake a future act; nor
- validate any previous future acts.
Kevin Murphy, Director of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land Services, Department of Natural Resources and Mines, stated that "the ILUA regulates the Gudjala People's rights and interests within the national parks and addresses a range of issues including the permanent preservation of the areas' natural condition and the protection of cultural resources and values."|
