Tauschke v. East Gippsland Shire Council (Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal VCAT 2231)

Jurisdiction: Australia

Side A: John Tauschke (Individual)

Side B: East Gippsland Shire Council (Government)

Core objectives: Challenge to construction permit provision

Tauschke sought review in an Australian state court of a residential building permit that denied him the right to build on his coastal property because of sea level requirements and coastal hazard management considerations regarding coastal impacts of climate change. Based on expert testimony, the court found that the land could be developed in a manner that managed flood risks and amended the condition of the permit to provide for such requirements.
