Kennedy v Director-General and Stocklands - EDO NSW

Kennedy v Director-General and Stocklands

This matter related to a decision to allow the destruction of objects with cultural heritage significance at Sandon Point. It raised issues relating to the failure of the local council to take into account relevant matters when assessing the application to destroy cultural heritage, particularly the fact that the council, in reaching its decision, relied on archaeological reports that were prepared in relation to previous applications and did not undertake fresh consultation with the Aboriginal community on the issue. Due to a review of prospects of success after the finding in the Williams case (below), EDO NSW ceased to act in this matter.
