Summary Information:
This Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between the State of Queensland and Meun Lifu on his own behalf and on behalf of the Gudang Yadhaykenu Peoples, Bethena McDonnell on her own behalf and on behalf of the Seven Rivers Angkamuthi Peoples and Cecelia Ropeyarn on her own behalf and on behalf of the Atambayah Peoples. The purpose of this ILUA is to provide consent for the grant of a Trustee Lease over the ILUA area, and for the doing of a series of acts related to the construction and operation of a Pre-Prep Facility on the ILUA area.
Detailed Information:
This ILUA was made to enable the extension of the Injinoo Pre-Prep - Year Seven Campus of the Northern Peninsula Area State College onto community land adjacent to the school. It was the first Indigenous Land Use Agreement to be made between an indigenous community and the Queensland Department of Education, Training and Arts.

Pursuant to this ILUA, the parties consent to the grant of a Trustee Lease under the Aboriginal Land Act 1991 (Qld) over the ILUA area. They also consent to the undertaking of any act related to the construction or operation of a Pre-Prep Facility on the ILUA area. Such acts include survey activities, geotechnical investigations and the grant of licenses, permits and authorities.

The parties agree that no compensation will be applicable to their consent to either the grant of the Trustee Lease or the doing of the abovementioned acts in relation to construction.

Non-extinguishment principle

The parties agree that the non-extinguishment principle under s 238 of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) applies to the grant of the Trustee Lease and the doing of all acts related to construction. This principle provides that a future act that would otherwise extinguish native title over the ILUA area will not have that effect, but will instead suspend native title rights for the duration of the act.

Right to negotiate provisions

The parties also agree that the right to negotiate provisions in Part 2, Division 3, Subdivision P of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to the grant of the Trustee Lease or to the doing of the acts related to construction.
