David Kettle Consulting v. Gosford City Council (New South Wales Land and Environment Court, 2008)

Jurisdiction: Australia


Side A: David Kettle Consulting (Corporation)


Side B: Gosford City Council (Government)


Core objectives: Challenge of permit conditions for water extraction


Summary
Coca-Cola Amatil (Aust) appealed the conditions placed on a permit for water extraction at a water bottling plant, which restricted the rate of extraction and total extraction levels. The court granted the permit without the conditions through 2011. Taking into account the impacts of climate change on rainfall, the court suggested that the extraction rates and levels should be reevaluated in 2011 using more timely data.
