Queensland moves to strike mining/farming balance
The Queensland Government has announced it will move to strike a balance between the interests of the mining industry and landholders after it tabled a report by an Independent Review into Land Access arrangements.
Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Andrew Cripps said the State Government is determined to strike a balance between the resource sector’s ambitious growth plans and the legitimate concerns of landowners.
The full Land Access Review Panel report will be available on the Department of Natural Resources and Mines website today and stakeholders are encouraged to provide direct comment to the Department within 30 days.
