Land Bank is short on facts

April 14, 2014

Radio Regime has announced that $4.6 million has been paid to indigenous landowners who have deposited their land in the Frank Land Bank. We are not told who the lessee is (apparently only one) or how much land is involved. Nor are we told how long the leases run. Are they 99 year leases? How much rent is being paid? What are the provisions for re-assessing rent in line with inflation? The Land Bank gives total power to the PM to set rents and all conditions for leases, so he should be telling us and the landowners what decisions he’s made.

  1. This is one thing that this as ole and Aiarse have been trying to keep under wraps. Land ownership is guaranteed but what is the use of that guarantee when the PM can lease it on his own terms without the approval of the land owners?
