A future act is a proposed activity that might affect Country such as mining, exploration, fishing, tourism or other developments. Western Australia’s resource boom has resulted in high volumes of future act work on Yamatji and Marlpa Country.
Registered native title claimants and registered native title bodies have a number of rights under the Native Title Act 1993 and the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972. This includes the right to be notified and consulted about development decisions on Country.
We provide legal representation and other professional services to assist native title groups with their future act negotiations.
