Public housing reports

An amendment to the Native Title Act 1993 (Subdivision JA) made provision for the construction, maintenance and use of public housing and infrastructure on Indigenous held land that is, or may be, subject to native title.

The amendment requires the 'action body' (such as a government or council) undertaking the public infrastructure development to notify relevant native title parties of the acts to be done, and consult with those parties about the proposed acts if requested. The action body must then provide the Australian Government Minister (currently the Attorney-General) with a report on the notification and consultation process.

Consultation reports can be sent to the Attorney-General at attorney@ag.gov.au and to the Native Title Unit in the Attorney-General's Department at 24JAA.report@ag.gov.au.

The Attorney-General may publish the consultation reports. The following consultation reports are approved for publication:
