Landholder unease rising over Minerals Bill

Inga Stunzner writes in Queensland Country Life (19 December 2014) ‘Landholder rights will be further eroded when dealing with resource companies under the proposed Mineral and Energy Resources (Common Provisions) Regulation 2015, a Rockhampton lawyer warns. Property partner at South Geldard Lawyers Brad Beasley, is urging landholders and property groups to be aware of the new legislation and speak up. … “Landholders should voice their concerns to government about the 200-metre restricted land distance, as it is not in their interests to have resource activities this close to their homes, buildings or valuable property infrastructure,” Mr Beasley said. The previous calls for a buffer zone of 600 to 1000 metres had been ignored, he added.’
