Burrup and Maitland Industrial Estates Agreement

Text Size a a a Print Print this page

The WA Government entered into the Burrup and Maitland Industrial Estates Agreement Implementation Deed (the Burrup Agreement) with three Aboriginal groups in January 2003. The Burrup Agreement enabled the State Government to compulsorily acquire native title rights and interests in the area of the Burrup Peninsula and certain parcels of land near Karratha.

The Burrup Agreement allows for industrial development to progress across southern parts of the Burrup Peninsula, provides for the development of a conservation estate and ensures the protection of Aboriginal heritage.

Read a summary about the Agreement on the Agreements, Treaties and Negotiated Settlements website.
