The long journey to Native Title and Self Determination.
GPC ILUA Fund
GPC & PCCC Indigenous Land Use Fund
An Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) has been established between the Port Curtis Coral Coast (PCCC) Native Title Claim Group and Gladstone Ports Corporation. This voluntary partnership has been established to ensure the responsible and respectful management of the lands and sea on which we do business to deliver sustainable and mutual prosperity.
A fund has been established through the ILUA to support projects and initiatives that develop, educate and enhance the community and our environment. The Fund is administered by an ILUA Implementation Committee consisting of four PCCC representatives and four GPC representatives.
