The Act regulates the acquisition of land by the Crown for public purposes. It establishes the power to acquire land for any public purpose and powers to make a preliminary investigation (sects. 3 and 4). The acquiring authority shall not compulsorily acquire land unless he has obtained a Court Order that was applied for (sect. 6). If the Court Order is not issued, damages shall be paid to those with an interest in the property. If the Order is issued, adequate compensation shall be paid.

Amended by: State Acquisition of Lands (Amendment) Act 1998 (No. 1 of 1998). (1998)
