    Summary Information:
    Between: Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council (APPLICANT) and Minister for Lands and NTSCORP Limited (RESPONDENTS)

    Judge: Jacobson J
    Where made: Sydney, New South Wales

    Determination:

    Native title does not exist in the determination area
    Detailed Information:
    This determination was made to amend previous conveyancing errors. The land was designated as state forest, over which necessary easements could not legally be granted. This land has since been transferred to the Eden Aboriginal Land Council, who confirmed in this determination that the areas in question were not of cultural significance to the local indigenous people.

    In light of this information, Jacobson J was satisfied that the court had the power to make the determination. The determination would involve a land swap through which some land would be transferred to the applicant while other areas would be transferred to the respondent, with the aim of adjusting the boundaries to reflect current use.
