SUBMISSION ON THE LAND ADMINISTRATION AMENDMENT BILL 2016 AND
RANGELANDS TENURE REFORM REVIEW
SUMMARY: The Department of Lands is undertaking a review of the Land Administration Act 1997 in response to the Rangelands Tenure Reform review. The Department has released the Land Administration Amendment Bill 2016 and a Consultation Paper, and sought public comment. The period for making comment on the Bill and Consultation Paper closed on 5 May 2016.
Shire Officers sought an extension to the submission period to enable the matter to be considered by Council. Unfortunately, the Department of Lands could not grant an extension to the comment period due to Departmental and parliamentary timeframes. As a result, Officers had to make an officer level submission on the Bill and Consultation Paper.

The request for in-principle support is presented to Council for consideration.
The report recommends that Council advise NBY that it supports NBY's aspirations to develop land granted to the Yawuru Native Title Holders Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC under the ILUA and the development of land for service commercial purposes in Broome.
