Environmental Defenders Offices (EDO) Seminar Series 2009
The Major Transport Projects Facilitation legislation introduces far-reaching changes to environmental and planning laws for projects that are declared by the Premier as major transport projects. The legislation, introduced with no public consultation, replaces existing environmental approvals with a new approval process intended to fast track new freeways, ports, rail lines.
• How does the legislation restrict public involvement in decision making about transport projects?
• What impact does the legislation have on existing environmental approvals?
• What sort of projects will be caught by the legislation?
Speakers: Brian Walters SC and others will discuss the impact of the legislation on the community, the environment and good governance.
