QLD: After years of legal battles, Rainbow Beach environment & community win against developers

Court Decision: Rainbow Shores P/L v Gympie Regional Council & Ors: The proposal (i) would adversely impact on the flora, fauna and biodiversity values to an unwarranted extent; (ii) would consequently conflict with the provisions of various planning documents, including the superseded, existing and draft planning schemes; and (iii) is not supported by sufficient economic, community or planning need; and (e) the matters relied upon by the appellant are not sufficient to warrant approval otherwise. The appellant has not discharged its onus. The appeal is dismissed. (Transcript of decision inside.)
