An appeal regarding two pieces of freehold land at Rothwell, within the area of the Moreton Bay Regional Council. Traspunt was refused a development permit for vegetation clearing by the Council. On appeal, Traspunt was able to clear vegetation on some boundaries but not others. Neither Traspunt nor the Council were content with the outcome. Each applied for leave to appeal against the decision, saying that it should have succeeded entirely.
Roger Traves QC (with S J Given) appeared on behalf of the applicant/cross respondent, instructed by MacPherson Kelly.
