Myers v. South Gippsland Shire Council (No 2) (Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, 2009)

Jurisdiction: Australia


Side A: Deborah Myers (Individual)


Side B: South Gippsland Shire Council (Government)


Core objectives:

Application for city council to reject coastal residential development plan based on negative climate change risk assessment


Summary
Subsequent to the submission of the coastal hazard vulnerability assessment required by the Tribunal in Myers v. South Gippsland Shire Council (No 1), which revealed that the proposed coastal residential lot would be inundated by flooding and storm surges by 2100, the Tribunal concluded that permission could not be granted for the proposal without a proper local policy or scheme in place to address the predicted issues.
