Have your Say! Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority Act 1972

Posted: May 16th, 2022

Changes are proposed to the Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority Act, aiming to maximise opportunities for divestment and increase Aboriginal land ownership and management, economic activity, and improved outcomes for Aboriginal communities.

Consultation is now underway on the proposed changes to the Act, which aim to streamline divestment of Part III reserved lands, replace outdated terms, and clearly define consultation requirements for stakeholders and the Aboriginal Lands Trust.

 If you wish to participate in the consultations in person, the following options are available in YMAC’s representative regions:


24 May 2022: 10.30am to 12.30pm
