Extractive sector companies, such as mining companies, often hold various forms of title to large land areas. Projects are often of a scale which may result in progressive periods of land access over time, and result in impacts, positive and negative, which may take place over a wide area, well beyond the project boundaries. Development of an land management plan (LMP) provides an opportunity to draw together key social management plans and considerations, including land access and resettlement, community investment and influx management, and consider how these can be complementary in maximising value and reducing risks through effective social spend. An examination of opportunities to minimise land take is a key requirement, as well as opportunities to phase land access requirements and integrate this into a rolling land rehabilitation and return programme where possible. The LMP should recognise existing issues which may have created land conflicts or tensions and how these might be resolved through the plan's policies.
