New case on landclearing and the Great Barrier Reef - EDO NSW

New case on landclearing and the Great Barrier Reef

EDO NSW has filed a new case challenging a decision of the Federal Minister for the Environment to use the least rigorous assessment method for a proposal to clear 2,100 ha of native vegetation on the Cape York Peninsula.

Our client in this case is the Environment Council of Central Queensland (ECoCeQ).

This clearing is likely to have significant impacts on matters of national environmental significance, including the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and listed threatened species and ecological communities.
