We may draw upon a range of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options to help resolve the issues between the parties.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • mediation
  • conciliation
  • case appraisal.

We encourage good faith negotiations and cooperation so that disputes can be amicably and effectively resolved through dialogue and voluntary agreement. We can also provide advice and recommendations to help parties achieve resolution.

Our dispute resolution service offers the opportunity for participants to reach agreement and resolve the issues without the need for court.

In cases where parties are unable to reach agreement, we will provide advice and recommendations to the parties on how to resolve the dispute based on the investigative process.

Where a dispute continues to exist and/or if a party is not satisfied with the recommendations we have provided, either party can:

  • apply to the Land Court for a binding decision
  • contact Department of Resources for advice on conferencing options
  • pursue private ADR at their own expense.
