Immediately implement an independent statutory body to oversee development of strict land and water legislation, based on science, with the objective of ensuring CSG does not adversely affect the environment or other existing water or property rights;
Ban all hydraulic fracturing and other means of stimulating gas flow until a proper risk analysis of the relevant coal formation and underground aquifers has been undertaken and appropriate supervision and conditioning implemented;
Employ additional regional compliance staff to audit all CSG activities as per the existing legislation;
Immediately commence maintenance of existing and new infrastructure, affected by the expansion of the CSG industries;
Call for the revocation of the Commonwealth Government LNG export licence approvals and

 Immediately enact a moratorium on all future CSG activities until an independent peer-reviewed investigation into the long-term environmental, social and infrastructure consequences of the CSG industry in Queensland is undertaken
