Conservation agreements with a statutory authority or another minister

The Minister may enter into a conservation agreement under Section 69B of the National Parks & Wildlife Act 1974. Section 69C states the purpose and content of conservation agreements.

Under section 69K of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 (the Act), public notice, public exhibition, and submissions from the public and from the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council must be invited and considered before the Minister enters into a conservation agreement with a statutory authority or another Minister, or Crown lands or lands of the Crown.

Section 69K (5) states that this requirement does not apply if the proposed conservation agreement is over land leased by a person (other than a statutory authority or Minister) if the lease is made under the Crown Lands Act 1989, the Crown Lands (Continued Tenures) Act 1989 or the Western Lands Act 1901.
