Residential Development Appeal Process
On 7 February 2011 new laws came into effect providing a new, streamlined way for the Land and Environment Court to resolve disputes concerning applications for the construction of detached single dwellings and dual occupancies (including subdivisions), or alterations or additions to such dwellings or dual occupancies.
These new procedures apply to appeals lodged with the Court on and after 7 February 2011 concerning such developments. The new system is designed to assist with the just, quick and cheap resolution of the issues that are in dispute between the parties.
These elements of the Court’s website are designed to assist with an introduction to this new process and an explanation, in “question and answer” form, how the process will operate. Provided below are links to a range of materials that may be of assistance to persons and their legal representatives and agents involved in such proceedings.
This page is intended to act as a guide to the Court’s approach to Class 1 residential development appeals, however it does not constitute legal advice or offer any guarantee as to how a particular dispute will be decided by the Court.
