About land access code

The Land Access Code 2016 stresses the importance of establishing good relations between the owners and occupiers of private land (landholders) and the holders of resource authorities. It has been designed to provide a balance between the interests of the agriculture and resources sectors.

It outlines general principles for negotiations and provides guidelines for communication.

The Code also imposes mandatory conditions for conducting authorised resource activities on private land, including using the land in a way that minimises disturbance to people, livestock and property.
