Detailed Information:
Commencement

This ILUA was registered with the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements on 26 March 2015.

The Extract does not provide a specific start or end date for the Agreement.

The Extract does note, however, that Clauses:
- 1 (Definitions);
- 2 (Interpretation);
- 3 (Commencement and Expiry);
- 4 (Authority); and
- 11 (Registration as an Area Agreement)

commence on the Execution Date, being 17 October 2014.

The remaining Clauses of the Agreement commence on the Registration Date, being 26 March 2015.

Native Title Provisions

The Extract notes that there are no statements within the Agreement of the kind which are mentioned in 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under these sections are not triggered by this agreement.

This means that the ILUA does not:

- provide consent for the doing of any acts by non-native title parties;

- effect the right of the native title parties to negotiate with non-native title parties proposing to undertake a future act; nor

- validate any previous future acts.
