Acts Amendment (Carbon Rights and Tree Plantation Agreements) Bill 2002

Bill No. 119
Long Title The purpose of this Bill is to amend the Transfer of Land Act 1893 to provide for the registration of carbon rights under the Carbon Rights Bill 2002; carbon covenants entered into under the Carbon Rights Bill 2002; and tree plantation agreements entered into under the Tree Plantation Agreements Bill 2002. The ability to register these things will remove the risk that a court might find, in the event of a dispute between the parties, that despite a person's investment in the right, covenant or plantation, the right, or the trees, belonged to the landholder.
