Template pastoral ILUA a winner
QUEENSLAND landholders and native title claimants can now form lasting partnerships after a Bill was introduced into State Parliament last week.
AgForce Native Title spokesman John Stewart said AgForce congratulated the State Government on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Bill 2011, and its commitment to offer a simpler way for property owners and traditional owners to negotiate Indigenous Land Use Agreements.
"The State Government's support for the template pastoral ILUA is a big win for pastoralists as it provides the opportunity for a 25% reduction in land rent for five years to landholders who sign," Mr Stewart said.
"The template represents a common sense approach to managing the interests of both landowners and native title holders."
