THE Western Australian Government has released a discussion paper on its review of the State’s land administration laws.
Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said to date the review had involved consultation with a range of stakeholders including representatives of local government, pastoralists and Aboriginal and conservation interests.
"Several Government agencies have also been asked to contribute to the review process," Ms MacTiernan said.
"The discussion paper raises a number of key issues related to the operation of the Act and how it can be enhanced to make it more effective," she said.
"For example, modernising the Act’s resumption provisions would allow better provision for managed access to Crown land for recreational purposes.
"Another option under consideration is providing for grants of tenure sold over Crown airspace to be linked to the life of buildings constructed within the freehold airspace."
Under the act, a report on the finding of the review must be presented to State Parliament by September.
