Catherine Hill Bay Progress Association and Dune Care Inc v Minister for Planning & Anor

August 2011

EDO NSW, on behalf of Catherine Hill Bay Progress Association and Dune Care Inc, commenced judicial review proceedings in the Land and Environment Court. The applicants sought to challenge a major project approval for a staged residential subdivision to create up to 600 residential lots, bulk earthworks, and infrastructure at Catherine Hill Bay.

The applicant raised the potential for the matter to be referred to mediation with the respondents. On 19 October 2011 the parties engaged in a 9 hour mediation session. Consequently, an agreement acceptable to all parties was reached and the matter was discontinued in the Land and Environment Court.
