The Land Use Activity Regime Policy explains the simplified alternative to the future acts regime of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth). It provides procedural rights for recognised traditional owner groups over certain land use activities that occur on areas of public land.
A Land Use Activity Agreement is entered into under Part 4 of the Traditional Owner Settlement Act 2010 (Vic). It is a replacement for the 'future acts' process, which operates under the Native Title Act.
An Indigenous Land Use Agreement is entered into pursuant to the Native Title Act and registered on the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements.
The reasonable cost of negotiating under a Land Use Activity Agreement is to be calculated using Form 1 attached below, as prescribed by the Traditional Owner Settlement (Negotiation Costs) Regulations 2015 .
