Use of the Agreement Area

The Right to Negotiate

The Agreement states that Part 2 Division 3 Subdivision P of the Native Title Act (in respect of the right to negotiate) does not apply to any Future Acts covered by the Agreement.

Low Native Title Impact Activity

Clause 29.1 of the Agreement provides that the Parties consent to any activity which has a Low Native Title Impact, as described in Schedule 4 of the Agreement. This includes activities such as maintenance, low impact infrastructure, pest control and local government operational activities.

High Native Title Impact Activity

Clause 29.3 of the Agreement states that the Parties may consent to any activity which has a High Native Title Impact, as set out within Schedule 5. This includes high impact infrastructure, high impact tenure grants, and activities which temporarily prevent the exercise of native title. Consent of High Native Title Impact Activities requires that notice is given and consultation undertaken with the Native Title Party; or consensus is reached at a Capital Works Forum.

Capital Works Forum

"Capital Works Forum" means one or more meetings of the Native Title Party and Local Government, for the purposes set out below.

Clauses 32.4 of the agreement states that the objectives of a Capital Works Forum are to:
(a) provide a forum at which the Local Government can table a list of proposed capital works for discussion and reaching consensus about whether they have a Low Native Title Impact or a High Native Title Impact; and
(b) enable the Parties to discuss any other proposed Activities which the Local Government cannot readily categorise as Low or High Native Title Impact, with a view to reaching a consensus on their categorisation;
(c) in the case that the Parties reach consensus that any of the listed capital works are activities that have a High Native Title Impact, to enable them to undertake consultation in relation to those activities.
