The applicant sought declaratory relief about a delegate’s decision to give a development approval. In dispute was whether the development application approved was impact assessable rather than code assessable.
The applicant, Riverside, owned Riparian Plaza which is on land adjoining the Eagle Street Pier redevelopment site in Brisbane’s CBD. Riverside challenged the validity of the development approval and sought declaratory and consequential relief pursuant to sections 11(a) and (b) of the Planning & Environment Court Act 2016.
John Ware (with D Gore KC) appeared for the second and third respondents, instructed by King & Wood Mallesons.
