TERRITORY PARKS AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION ACT - SECT 19

Plan of management to be laid before Assembly

    (1)     The Minister shall, as soon as practicable after a plan of management has been accepted under section 18, cause it to be laid before the Legislative Assembly.

    (2)     The Legislative Assembly may in pursuance of a motion, notice of which is given within 7 sitting days after the plan of management has been laid before it, pass a resolution disallowing the plan of management.

    (3)     If the Legislative Assembly does not pass a resolution in accordance with subsection (2) disallowing the plan of management, the plan of management comes into operation on the day immediately following the last day upon which such a resolution could have been passed.

    (4)     If, before the expiration of 7 sitting days after the plan of management has been laid before the Legislative Assembly:

        (a)     the Assembly expires or is prorogued; and

        (b)     notice of motion for the disallowance of the plan of management has not been given,

the plan of management shall, for the purposes of this section, be deemed to have been laid before the Legislative Assembly on the first sitting day of the Assembly after the expiry or prorogation, as the case may be.

    (5)     If the Legislative Assembly passes a resolution in accordance with subsection (2) disallowing the plan of management, the Administrator shall direct the Commission to prepare a fresh plan of management and the Commission shall thereupon reconsider the matter and prepare a fresh plan of management, and for that purpose section 18 applies accordingly.

    (6)     As soon as practicable after a plan of management has come into operation, the Minister shall publish a notice in the Gazette and in such newspapers as he thinks fit, stating that the plan of management has come into operation and specifying an address or addresses where copies of the plan of management may be inspected or purchased.
