Redland City Council is seeking clarity from the Federal Court to determine if native title has been extinguished on many of these sites. This is an incredibly expensive and lengthy process that will potentially cost ratepayers millions and take years to progress.
To achieve fair and just outcomes on these matters, it had been the approach of the Commonwealth Government for many years to provide financial support to both the Native Title claimants and the respondents. Regrettably, the Albanese Government has recently chosen to abolish the Native Title Respondent Funding Scheme (NTRFS). I have made multiple requests to the Attorney General to have respondent funding restored for the Redlands. Sadly these requests have been dismissed.
Join me in the fight for respondent funding to achieve a fair and just outcomes for both claimants and respondents.
