Jurisdiction: Australia


Side A: W & B Cabinets (Corporation)


Side B: Casey City Council (Government)


Core objectives: Sought construction permit


Summary
Applicant land developer challenged the local council's requirement that it conduct a full coastal hazard vulnerability assessment (CHVA) prior to approval of a planning permit in an Australia state court. Where a local water agency had advised that the development would be acceptable as long as floor levels were designed taking into account sea level rise, the court found that the city council could not require a CHVA prior to permit approval. However, the court denied the permit on other grounds.
