Traditional owners say "Yes"

Today Traditional land owners voted to accept the establishment of an LNG precinct at James Price Point.
Premier Colin Barnett said the landmark agreement, involving the Kimberley Land Council and Woodside, provided comprehensive native title and cultural heritage agreements and land tenure arrangements.
The precinct, 60km north of Broome, will occupy about 1000ha but with accommodation, ancillary services and a land and sea buffer, the total area could be up to 3500ha.
The site will be subjected to an environmental assessment before development proceeds.
Woodside can begin construction by mid to late 2011.
