Peter King, acting for Oberon, Cabonne and others completed his submission to Judge Preston in the Land & Environment Court on Friday 3 June. Court will resume at 10am Monday June 6 when the Defence are scheduled to complete their submission. Judge Preston will then consider his determination. Our advice is that it is highly unlikely a determination will be handed down immediately.
The basis of our case is that the Boundaries Commission process lacked procedural fairness in relation to the Local Government Act as well as challenging the OLG assertion that KPMG acted independently. Although I have not seen them, documents emerging last week appear to support this claim.
The support of community members who have attended court over the past two weeks has been appreciated by both council and our legal team.
