EDO NSW is a community legal centre specialising in environmental law. We provide free initial legal advice.
We have a range of Fact Sheets to explain the law on different topics, such as tree disputes, pollution, planning and mining - select fact sheets from the list below or by using the topics menu at the right.
We encourage people to read the relevant fact sheet before calling for legal assistance. But if you don’t find the answer to your questions in our fact sheets, please call our Environmental Law Line. Your request will be allocated to one of our solicitors who will call you back, usually within a few days of your call.
While we aim to be as accurate as possible, sometimes mistakes are made. If you find an error or can’t find a fact sheet that relates to your issue, please contact us.
