As you may have heard on ABC radio, the State Attorney-General has refused to restore our State funding. He however acknowledged that EDOs are the only places where Queensland communities can obtain professional legal advice free of charge when faced with public interest environmental, planning and health concerns from proposed developments.
EDO Qld has had to suspend our general legal advice service.
Mackay Conservation Group Inc (MCG) was successful in its application to the Planning and Environment Court for an order that it be included as a party in matters brought by developer Eastpoint Mackay Pty Ltd.
There has been recent media suggesting environment groups would use litigation to delay and disrupt development. As EDO Queensland was referred to in a couple of articles, we felt it important to keep our supporters up to date.
