Rearrangement of Rural Cadastral Boundaries in the Darling Downs, Queensland
Webb, Robert M. & Hannigan, Brian J. (1997) Rearrangement of Rural Cadastral Boundaries in the Darling Downs, Queensland. In Fryer, John (Ed.) 1st Trans Tasman Surveyors Conference, 12-18 April 1997, Newcastle, NSW, Australia.
Historically, land boundaries on the Darling Downs were set out on cardinal lines forming squares and rectangles enclosing a given area. Little or no regard was given to the qualities of lands enclosed or the way in which the boundaries dissected the landscape. In recent times the implementation of optimum rural land use practices is seriously impeded by the inappropriate relationships of farm boundaries to the landform. For a variety of reasons the cadastral system has come to be regarded as fixed, with disincentives in place to dissuade landholders, local authorities, and farm planners from contempleting a rearrangement of boundaries. This paper summarises the concepts of "remembrement" and the accompanying poster paper examines three hypothetical property boundary rearrangements including a brief exploration of the many associated issues, impacts and potential longer term benefits.
