Topic: Registration of Interest Process for Crown Land on Christmas Island

On 7 March 2017, Senator the Hon Fiona Nash, Minister for Local Government and Territories, announced a Registration of Interest process for Crown land on Christmas Island. The Minister invited interested individuals and organisations to register their interest in purchasing or leasing available Crown Land on Christmas Island.

Registrations of Interest closed on 12 May 2017 and are now being assessed by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development. I will be assisting the Department in its assessment.

There was a considerable amount of interest from individuals and organisations in acquiring Crown land. This interest demonstrates the willingness of organisations to invest in our future and the economic development of the Island.

I look forward to providing you with further updates on the Registration of Interest process.
