Jammin’ for environmental law

The Queensland Government is developing new planning laws which will impact Gold Coasters, in the development of their city, their homes, workplaces and recreational opportunities.

So, the Gold Coast’s peak environment group, Gecko – Gold Coast & Hinterland Environment Council is joining forces with the Environment Defenders Organisation to bring together experts for a LawJam which will focus on planning reform.

Planning Reform and the Community will take place on Thursday 16 July at Robina Community Centre from 6.00pm and will focus on reviewing the proposed new Queensland planning legislation.

As well as representatives from Gecko, the program includes Jo Bragg, the CEO of Environmental Defenders Organisation (QLD), James Coutts who is the Planning Services Division Executive Director from the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, Brian Feeney, a retired town planner and Professor Philip Follent who is the former Queensland Government Architect.

Following presentations by speakers the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.
