In 2014 the state of Western Australia and the Esperance Nyungars negotiated an Indigenous Land use Agreement (ENILUA) as a component of the consent determination package. The ENILUA provides benefits that include land holdings for economic, cultural and residential purposes.

This paper, presented by the Co-Chairs of the newly formed Esperance Nyungar PBC, considers how traditional owners were involved in the negotiations and sets out their aspirations for how land exchanged under the ILUA can be used for community and economic development.
