The construction of Jabiru was primarily financed by Ranger Energy Resources Australia`s (ERA) mine operator and the Northern Territory Government, which entered into a cost-sharing agreement to create mechanisms for each supplier to recover their costs from “new entrants.” At the time of the development of this plan, there were no new entrants and the ERDF has a significant portion of the city`s critical service infrastructure, including electricity supply. It also maintains and provides access to Jabiru Airport in the Ranger Project area and has built a number of community facilities in Jabiru. Part 13 of the EPBC Act contains provisions prohibiting and regulating measures for threatened species and listed ecological communities, listed migratory species, whales (whales and dolphins) and listed marine species. Appendix J of this plan identifies species in the park that, at the time of development, are considered threatened under the EPBC Act. Appendix D refers to migratory and marine species listed in the EPBC Act and in international conventions, treaties and agreements at the time of the development of this plan. 15 This rent can be terminated in writing at any time, with the agreement of the landlord and the taker. The common management relationship in Kakadu has evolved since the lease of the first stage of the park was signed in 1978. The elders, who marched the country and were closely linked to the country, have now been passed on. The next generation of Bininj/Mungguy has grown up with the common park management relationship and has strengthened as decision makers. Some people were concerned about the pace of change (The Bininj/Mungguy and Balanda changes) and the impact of these changes on people`s current lives. It is essential that Bininj/Mungguy continue to be involved in park management and it is equally important that park management continue to actively negotiate a balance that ensures control of the park`s values, achieves Bininj/Mungguy`s aspirations and takes into account the interests of other stakeholders where possible. The common management relationship will evolve and evolve over the life of this plan and into the future.
Ongoing investments in training and other capacity-building activities will help promote new frameworks and opportunities, such as outsourcing parking tasks, will continue to be identified and developed. A Cultural Heritage Information Management System (CHIMS) developed during the fifth plan is intended to store photos, oral histories and other cultural information for Bininj/Mungguy. An agreement negotiated in 2010 with the National Archives of Australia means it will contribute to the digitization and stabilization of all audio and video information – and this material can also be stored on CHIMS if it is available. The policy measures covered in Section 4 (Common Management) concern the recognition of Bininj/Mungguy`s cultural knowledge and skills and compliance with Bininj/Mungguy`s cultural practices and protocols are also important for this section. Most of the country, which was to be part of the first phase of Kakadu National Park, was transferred in August 1978 to the Kakadu Aboriginal Land Trust under the Land Rights Act, and in November 1978, the Land Trust and the Director signed a lease for the land to be developed as a national park. The first stage of the park, which covers land and land leased for the municipality of Jabiru and some adjacent areas, was proclaimed on April 5, 1979. 16 (1) The lessor and the taker may, from time to time, by written agreement, complete, replace, cancel or modify the terms of this lease.
