Two parcels of land given the all clear for inclusion in Noongar Land Estate
The Shire of Lake Grace council has found no issues with land being considered for inclusion in the Noongar Land Estate.
The South West Native Title Settlement is a landmark deal brokered by the State Government and six Noongar agreement groups.
It covers about 200,000sqkm of the South West region and involves 30,000 Noongar people.
A 320,000ha Noongar Land Estate is included in the deal with land to be used and managed in line with Noongar cultural, social and economic aspirations for future generations.
Two parcels of land have been identified in the Shire of Lake Grace.
One 400ha parcel, located on the southern boundary of the shire, comprises an area on the far eastern end of Lake Magenta Nature reserve and near the border with Shire of Ravensthorpe.
Another reserve is about 16ha and is located on Biddy-Camm Road, about 500m west of Burngup South Road.
At last month’s council meeting, the Shire declared no interest in the land and stated that no existing or planned infrastructure was located on either plot.
Shire chief executive Alan George stressed the decision did not mean land would definitely be transferred.
