EDO Insider – CPD on the Barangaroo Crown Casino Case
How did the Crown Casino get the go ahead on land that was set aside for a public park at Barangaroo?
Get the inside story on a recent public interest test case in the Land and Environment Court that challenged the planning approval for this development.
In Millers Point Fund Inc v Lendlease Millers Point Pty Ltd & others, a community group challenged decisions by the NSW Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) to approve the Crown Casino development at Barangaroo in Sydney. This complex case relates to the interaction between the approvals process under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act and the provisions of the Casino Control Act.
Jane Taylor of Counsel and Sue Higginson of EDO NSW will discuss the case and the precedent that it sets.
All funds raised from this session go towards our core work of helping the community to protect the environment through law. You can claim CPD points for this and all of our professional development seminars.
We are very grateful to our pro bono partner McCabes for hosting this seminar.
