LawJam 7 - Planning Law Overhaul
Join EDO Qld for the latest in a successful series of law reform workshops â€“ where we explain and analyse the ever changing area that is Queensland environmental law. Recently, the Queensland Government proposed significant changes to planning laws, which will affect the rights of communities and individuals to have their say on planning and development in their area. We encourage everyone to come along and learn how these changes may affect you, and how to make your voice heard about the proposed changes.
The newly proposed Planning and Development Bill is to replace the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. The bill is a consultation draft and is open for comment until 23 September. Speakers David Corkill, Principal Planner at Buckley Vann, and Rana Koroglu, EDO Qldâ€™s Law Reform Solicitor, will present information from planning and legal perspectives, followed by a Q&A. Those who attend will be informed and ready to comment on this important legislative change.
When: 6.30-8.30pm, Monday 15 September
Where: Community Meeting Room, ground level, Brisbane Square Library, 266 George Street
What: A free legal seminar focusing on the Queensland Government's proposed overhaul of Planning and Development laws.
Speakers: Rana Koroglu and David Corkill.
NB: Brisbane Square Library closes at 6.00pm; a security guard will let you in to the meeting room.
