|Summary Information: |
|The Phase 1 of Larapinta Stage 4 Indigenous Land Use Agreement enables the release of land for residential development in the Larapinta Valley of Alice Springs.|
The native title holders of the area, the Arrernte people, are represented by the Lhere Artepe Aboriginal Corporation, which is the registered native title body corporate for the Alice Springs native title determination made by the Federal Court on 23 May 2000 which found that native title exists in parts of Alice Springs, including the area now covered by this ILUA.
Larapinta Stage 4 is part of an area of land within Alice Springs set aside for residential use. The ILUA sets out that Phase 1 of the residential development will occur in two areas. The native title holders have consented to the Northern Territory (NT) undertaking future acts (defined under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth)) for the residential development, in return for a Crown Lease and development agreement over one of the areas. The NT will release the land in the second area for development by 'public processes'.
As agreed by Lhere Artepe, the NT will grant a Crown Lease over each of the areas and then a freehold title as an estate in fee simple issued by the Registrar-General of the NT for each residential lot. A minimum of 30 lots is to be developed on each of the two areas. The NT will also create road reserves and 'construct, operate, use, maintain and repair' public works linked to the development area. In the areas covered by residential lots and road reserves, native title is surrendered to the NT and extinguished.
