Queensland Government eroding our democratic rights

05 June, 2014

Last night EDO Qld‘s Evan Hamman spoke at an urgent Summit on the State of the Environment at Griffith University organized by Wildlife Queensland.

Attendees were very concerned to learn of the limiting of community rights to object to mines, the changing of the cost rules in development appeals and the introduction of ‘skeleton Acts’ which provide no certainty or transparency in decision-making processes.

With the environment struggling to maintain its voice, governments should be empowering communities to have their say on developments, not the other way around.

Environmental Defenders Office Queensland (EDO Qld) gives a strong legal voice to the environment when needed most.
