An historic land agreement will accelerate housing availability in Port Hedland and provide local Aboriginal people with a strong stake in the town's future.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan signed an agreement with the Kariyarra Mugarinya Joint Venture, which allocates almost 12ha of prime residential land in Port Hedland to its traditional owners.

"There is a critical need for housing in Hedland and this agreement will help deliver approximately 140 dwellings, as well as provide training, development and ongoing employment for the indigenous population," Ms MacTiernan said.
