Details of the Agreement:

Commencement:

The agreement commences in full on the date of registration, 3 May 2018.

Termination:

Except for Clause 15 (Confidentiality), the agreement terminates automatically at the end of the Pastoral Lease or by written agreement of all the Parties.

Native Title Provisions:

Right to negotiate:

The parties agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) will not apply with respect to the agreed future acts.

Future Act Provisions:

The Extract notes that there are statements within the agreement of the kind which are mentioned in ss 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under those sections are triggered by this agreement. This means that the agreement provides consent for the doing of certain acts by non-native title parties. Specifically this ILUA provides the Budina PBC and the Budina People's consent for the doing of the following future acts:

  • the renewal, re-making or re-grant of the Emu Creek Pastoral Lease (NO50183) from time to time.
  • the grant of licence, permit, or authorisation from time to time, including any amendment or renewal, re-making or re-granting of the Pastoral Lease, to conduct activities for agricultural purposes (including the diversification and intensification of pastoral related activities) on the Pastoral Lease;
  • the grant of leases, licences and permits from time to time to conduct Low Impact Tourism activity in the Pastoral Lease; and
  • the grant of a pastoral lease from time to time in relation to all or part of any Stock Route or Reserve, to the extent and in the terms of Schedule 2 of the agreement.

Native Title in the Area:

The agreement is located within area of native title recognised in the Federal Court of Australia proceeding Lyndon on behalf of the Budina People v State of Western Australia [2004] FCA 131 (Budina People) (FCA File No,: WAD131/2004; NNTT File No.: WCD2017/006).
