This paper provides a snapshot of some successful examples of post-mining
land uses around the world and analyses economic drivers for that success.
It also considers some of the lessons to be learned from Butler v The
State of Queensland 2014] 2 Qd R 423 (the Collingwood Park case) relating
to a subsidence of residential land in the suburb of Collingwood Park,
Ipswich. This paper was first published by the Planning Institute of
