Pressing issues in valuation and compulsory acquisition – Level Twenty Seven Chambers Event
2 March 2021 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
What will the seminar cover?
The speakers will host a live online discussion focused on two cases from 2020 which raised topical questions:
- Conway & Ors v Australia Pacific LNG CSG Transmissions Pty Ltd & Anor  QLC 26 addressed questions about what compensation could arise from the reporting of a protected plant on a land owner’s property.
- Genamson Holdings Pty Ltd v Moreton Bay Regional Council & Anor  QSC 84 was a judicial review that examined the process by which a decision was made to compulsory acquire land and highlights the care required to undertake that process properly.
Questions can be submitted to Tamara McCombe (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance or live during the session.
