Aboriginal Land Grant (Jervis Bay Territory) Act

To the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled:

This petition of the Executive Committee of the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council, on behalf of the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council ("WBACC") draws to the attention of the House:

The requirement for amendments, deletions or additions to be made to the Aboriginal Land Grant (Jervis Bay Territory) Act 1986 and/or the Aboriginal Land Grant (Jervis Bay Territory) Regulations 2006.

We therefore ask the House to:

Enact regulations pursuant to Section 53, relating to imposition of penalties pursuant to Sections 52A(8)(a) and (b) of the Act. Council lacks the ability to enforce by-laws by way of penalties. Enacting of such regulations enables Council to have alternatives to commencing prosecutorial proceedings for contravention of by-laws.
