New legislation to bring certainty for Tjuntjuntjara community
Tuesday 11 December 2018
The remote Aboriginal community of Tjuntjuntjara, some 690 kilometres east of Kalgoorlie, will benefit from new legislation.
The legislation will facilitate investment in vital health and infrastructure projects within the community under a proposed Land Use Agreement.
Under the Reserves (Tjuntjuntjara Community) Bill 2018, an area of 78,578 hectares will be excised from the 'A' Class Great Victoria Desert Nature Reserve, to enable the granting of appropriate and registrable tenure for the community.
