On 24 December 2016, the NLC issued a Public Notice, pursuant to section 5(8) of the Aboriginal Land Act that waives the requirement for a permit to enter tidal waters overlying Aboriginal land for a period of six months, until 30 June 2017. This has since been reissued and the requirement for a permit will now expire on the 31 December 2017.
