(1) The proclamation laid before Parliament under this Division must assign a name to the Schedule 14 lands (or the part or parts of Schedule 14 lands) proposed to be reserved under this Division.(2) The name so assigned must be the name recommended by the Aboriginal negotiating panel involved in the negotiations for the vesting and leasing of the lands, and may be the same name as, or a different name from, that listed in Schedule 14.(3) The Governor may, on the recommendation of the Aboriginal owner board members for lands reserved under this Division, by proclamation published on the NSW legislation website:(a) alter the name of the lands, and(b) amend Schedule 14 by omitting the former name, and by inserting instead the new name, of the lands.(4) If a part or parts only of Schedule 14 lands are reserved under this Division, the Governor may, by proclamation published on the NSW legislation website, assign a new name for the part or parts of the Schedule 14 lands that are not reserved under this Division.(5) Section 12 (1) of the Geographical Names Act 1966 does not apply to a name assigned under this Division (or that name as altered or amended). The name so assigned, or the name as so altered or amended, is, for the purposes of the Geographical Names Act 1966, the geographical name of the place to which it relates.(6) If, before the reservation under this Division of Schedule 14 lands, the name of the lands is altered pursuant to the publication of a proclamation under Part 4 of this Act, that proclamation or another proclamation published on the NSW legislation website may amend Schedule 14 by omitting the former name, and by inserting instead the new name, of the lands.
