    DescriptionAs CSG activities rapidly expand in Queensland, community concern over the capacity of companies to come onto and damage land has increased landholders’ anxiety, and led to confusion over what the rights of property owners are in relation to their land, especially whether they can exclude the companies, or do they have to let them come onto the land with unfettered discretion?
