Coalcliff Community Association v Minister and Kembla Coal and Coke (Court of Appeal)

EDO NSW acted for the Association to stop the dumping of coal waste and seek remediation on a site on the Illawarra Escarpment. The initial court proceedings found that the dumping of coal waste by Kembla Coal & Coke had not complied with the conditions under a development consent granted in 1983, which had since lapsed, and was therefore illegal.

In further proceedings, the parties reached an agreement that provided for the remediation of the site by the new owner.
