File Number: D12/1348

Subject Heading:                          Compulsory Acquisition of Native Title Rights         and Interests for Weighbridge Purposes

Location:                                          Lot 1 on SP154291 - Corner of Surat Tara Road and Thomby        Road Surat

Author and Officer’s Title:                Tanya Mansfield, Manager Risk and Facilities

 

Executive Summary: 

Maranoa Regional Council (the Council) owns and operates the public weighbridge in Surat.  Council currently holds a term lease TL0/219822 over the land on which the weighbridge is situated, being land described as Lot 1 on Survey Plan 154291, Title Reference 40039606 (the Land). 

 

Due to the importance of the infrastructure to Council's operations and to the public at large, Council has applied to the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) to purchase the Land in freehold.  DERM has offered to sell the Land to Council subject to native title issues being satisfactorily addressed by Council. It is a requirement of the State of Queensland that any native title rights and interests be cleared before it will grant freehold title.  A search of the National Native Title Tribunal Register confirms that the Land is within the area of the Mandandanji People Native Title Determination Application QUD366/08.  

 

This Report recommends that Council resolve to compulsory acquire any native title rights and interests in the land for weighbridge purposes.
