Outline

IPWEA-QNT developed a process for dealing with native title and Aboriginal/Torres Straight Islander cultural heritage obligations in direct response to council need. This is a rapidly growing and ever-changing area of local government concern. The High Court of Australia handed down its findings in the first ever successful native title compensation case in March 2019, ordering the Northen Territory government to pay 2.5 million dollars in compensation for acts undertaking that impinged upon and affected the native title rights of Traditional Owners in one regional council within the NT jurisdiction. To avoid making the same errors, local governments in Queensland need to be aware of their obligations in meeting the legislation

Content

This webinar will discuss those obligations and the options available to local government in meeting them and the steps required to build vital infrastructure which does not breach Australian statutory law in these areas.
