The Land Administration Branch was located in a number of divisions within the Department of the Interior. In May 1972 there was a major re-organisation within the Department, which resulted in the policy function of the Branch being diverted to a newly created Land Policy Branch. Both Branches also moved to the control of the newly created ACT Lands and Transport Policy Division, which has been retained within the structure of the Department of the Capital Territory, the principal successor to the Department of the Interior (II). Functions of the Branch include:
analysis, transfer and processes; National Memorials Committee; administration of various leasing systems; representations from lessees; change of purpose of leasing; Commonwealth fencing; land sales; lease grants to clubs; lease of Commonwealth owned premises, sub-divisions etc.
