COMPENSATION REVIEW UNDER CCA


The Mineral and Energy Resources (Common Provisions) Act 2014 (Qld) provides an avenue for landholders who have entered into conduct and compensation agreements (CCAs) with gas, mining and other resource companies to have the compensation under those CCAs reviewed where they have suffered a material change in circumstances since the date of that agreement.


Section 101 of the Act gives the Land Court broad jurisdiction to review the compensation payable under CCAs where either party has experienced a material change in circumstances after the commencement of the agreement.


Section 99A of the Act also gives the Land Court jurisdiction make any order it considers appropriate with respect to an alleged breach of a conduct and compensation agreement.


Many of our clients, since signing a conduct and compensation agreement with a resource company, have suffered serious losses as the result of:

  • the introduction of unproductive and unwanted weeds on their land

  • subsidence or erosion

  • excessive noise and dust nuisance

  • overland flow

  • contamination to land or water sources

  • death or injury to livestock
