Preliminary Supreme Court date set: September 28.

supreme court challenge lend lease

Let’s hope Stonnington meets the challenge.

From Council’s website:

Stonnington City Council lodged an appeal with the Supreme Court against the recent VCAT determination to approve the development at 590 Orrong Road.

A Supreme Court Hearing is scheduled for 28 September 2012.

This hearing is likely to determine whether the City of Stonnington will be granted leave to appeal to the Supreme Court, although the exact nature of this hearing will be confirmed in the week prior to 28 September.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN EXACTLY?

As you know Council intends to appeal the recent pro-Lend Lease VCAT decision in the Supreme Court. However one cannot simply decide to appeal, one must “be granted leave to appeal”. This is to stop vexatious and frivolous appeals. Stonnington’s right to appeal will be considered on this date, September 28. We want you to attend this hearing so reserve the date. More details closer to the hearing.
