Forum: Planning for post-mining land use in central Queensland
9am – 1.30pm: 12th December, Western Gateway (CQ Room), Emerald
This event has been postponed to a future date to be advised.
Hosted by ACARP, CQU and UQ
The aim of this Forum is to identify the land uses that the central Queensland community would like to see for post-mining lands, relevant issues to address, the process for converting land from mining back to other uses, and how local stakeholders may be engaged in the process. It will provide an opportunity for different stakeholders in end-of- mine planning to discuss the goals and processes to convert post-mining lands back to agriculture and other uses.
The results of two current ACARP projects will be provided in the forum, together with other industry and policy information. There will be ample time for open discussion, and morning tea and lunch will be provided.
