Local Area Land Councils

Local Area Land Councils

Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALCs) have a degree of governance and interface with Local Councils, State and Federal Government bodies. There are three Local Aboriginal Land Councils whose boundaries overlap with the Byron Shire, being the Tweed Byron LALC situated in Tweed Heads, Jali LALC situated in Ballina, and Ngulingah LALC situated in Lismore. Local Aboriginal Land Councils have a right to be informed in the planning, protection and preservation of cultural sites and areas under the NSW Aboriginal Land Rights Act on land within their boundaries. The objectives of each Local Aboriginal Land Council are to improve, protect and foster the best interests of all Aboriginal persons within the Council's area and other persons who are members of the Council. Services include housing, legal affairs, employment, training and property acquisition and management.
