    Summary Information:
    The Northern Peninsula Area Infrastructure Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between the Cape York Land Council, Gudang Peoples, Angkamuthi People, Injinoo Aboriginal Council, New Mapoon Aboriginal Council and the State of Queensland on 12 December 2005.

    The purpose of the ILUA is to provide consent for a range of acts, whether or not they are 'future acts', relating to the construction and renovation of infrastructure, including housing and units.
    Detailed Information:
    The native title holders of the Northern Peninsula Area agree that the State of Queensland may upgrade and repair various infrastructures within their communities. This 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, 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.

    The parties to the ILUA consent to the doing of the following works:
  • Upgrading of power;
  • Removing the old tip, and creating a new tip;
  • Removing gravel from the existing quarry;
  • Upgrading the piggery;
  • Fencing drainage areas; and
  • Constructing and renovating housing, units and an army camp.

    The ILUA states that it will expire on the completion of the future acts or six months after it is entered onto the Register, whichever is the later.
