The Western Cape Communities Trust

The Western Cape Communities Trust (WCCT) and the Western Cape Communities Coordinating Committee (WCCCC) were established by the Western Cape Communities Co-Existence Agreement (WCCCA). It is important to note that the WCCT and the WCCCC are not parties to the Agreement, but rather created by the Agreement, and serve very different roles.

The Agreement was signed in March 2001 and is an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) over the mining lease areas. The Agreement is between eleven Traditional Owner Groups, four Shire Councils (Aurukun, Napranum, Mapoon and New Mapoon), Comalco (now Rio Tinto), the Queensland State Government and the Cape York Land Council on behalf of the Native Title Parties. The Queensland Government agreed to provide additional financial benefits on registration of the Agreement as an ILUA. The Agreement was registered with the National Native Title Tribunal under the Native Title Act 1993 on 24 August 2001.

The WCCT feedback survey is to ensure we are delivering to our beneficiaries as per the WCCCA Agreement. We value your input and giving you all a chance to be heard and information will be provided to Directors and Members and Councils in 2019. All participants that have completed the survey are in the draw for winning a prize and winners will be announced on 4 February 2019, encourage others to talk up and ‘Have Your Say’!

Regards,
Michelle Kostecki
Transition Manager
