Traditional Owner Land Use Activity Agreements
Land Use Activity Agreements under the Traditional Owner Settlement Act 2010 exist between traditional owners and the State of Victoria.
The Land Use Activity Agreements give procedural rights to traditional owners regarding proposed activities on public land. The greater the impact of those activities on traditional owner rights, the higher the level of procedural rights under the Land Use Activity Agreements.
Some licences (authorisations) issued by Goulburn-Murray Water for works on public land may be considered land use activities under the Land Use Activity Agreements.
Information regarding the Land Use Activity Agreements can be found on the Department of Justice and Community Safety webpages Land Use Activity Agreement information for local government and Overview of the Taungurung LUAA.
