The Principles of Cooperation agreement between the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council (Metro) and the Lane Cove Council ('the Agreement') was signed on 19 July 2004.
At the signing, Metro's Chairperson, Rob Welsh, stated that the Agreement could enable enhanced community understanding of Aboriginal culture and history and noted that the Agreement formalised ties between Aboriginal communities and other Lane Cove community groups.
The Agreement is the second such agreement signed between Metro and Councils in its area and the first signed on Sydney's north shore (see Metro 2006; Search 2004). Metro's 'aim is to sign a Principles of Cooperation Agreement with every Council within [its] boundaries' (Metro 2006).
Principles of Cooperation agreements are designed to create 'formal communication, consultation and negotiation processes between Metro' and each Council involved. They 'also [open] the way for possible future cross cultural training and joint community development initiatives' (see, eg, ABC 2005; Warringah Council 2005).
