    Summary Information:
    The Black Jungle / Lambells Lagoon Conservation Reserve Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was made between the Northern Land Council, the Northern Territory of Australia and the Native Title Parties to clarify the future title and management of the Black Jungle / Lambells Lagoon Conservation Reserve.

    This ILUA is one of 31 agreements signed over parks and reserves in the Northern Territory. The agreements were developed following the High Court's decision in Western Australia v Ward, which found that the Keep River National Park had not been properly established. In response, the Northern Territory government pursued ILUAs and joint management agreements to resolve tenure disputes and management of the parks. These agreements were negotiated from 2002 to 2005, during which time the Parks and Reserves (Framework for the Future) Act 2003 (NT) was also passed. These arrangements aim to settle all native title issues in Northern Territory national park areas.
    Detailed Information:
    The Black Jungle / Lambells Lagoon Conservation Reserve is listed under Schedule 3 of the Parks and Reserves (Framework for the Future) Act 2003 (NT). This means that no change in tenure is required to bring the Reserve in line with new arrangements for Northern Territory National Parks. However, the Act does require a joint management agreement to be implemented.

    Under the ILUA, the parties consent to the execution of a joint management agreement for the Black Jungle / Lambells Lagoon Conservation Reserve. The Northern Territory Government and the Northern Land Council agree to manage the Reserve in accordance with Joint Management Principles. The Parties consent to any action permitted in the Joint Management Plan, regardless of whether these actions are 'future acts'. Reference is also made to agreement regarding compensation and use of the Conservation Reserve.

    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.

    The purpose of the ILUA is to satisfy the conditions set out in s 10(1)(b) of the Parks and Reserves (Framework for the Future) Act, and to otherwise deal with native title issues in respect of the execution of the Joint Management Deed and actions taken in accordance with the Plan of Management for the Conservation Reserve.
