This study provides an analysis of the impacts of new industries on agricultural landholders and their communities; documents best practice for co-existence; and provides a checklist for farmers needing to accommodate a new industry on their land.

The report includes a case study of coal seam gas in the Queensland Surat Basin and open cut coal mining in the NSW Hunter Valley.
