A native title claim that Scott Franks and Anor had filed on behalf of the Plains Clans of the Wonnarua People (PCWP) was registered on the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) register on 16 January 2015.

The notification period for the PCWP native title application is 25 March to 24 June 2015. This notification period has now commenced. During this period, a person or organisation with an interest in the PCWP native title claimant application area can seek to become a respondent party to the application in the Federal Court. This means that such persons that would like to be joined as parties to the proceedings must apply to do so, in writing, on or before 24 June 2015.

This requires you to complete a Form 5, which you can find at the bottom of this article. Your role will be limited to the extent that the court asks a party to provide your views on how certain elements of the native title claim will affect your particular interest in the claim area.
