    Court of Appeal overturns Planning and Environment Court decision

    On 20 June 2016, we issued a focus alert about the decision of the Planning and Environment Court in Pike & Anor v Tighe & Ors1. In that case His Honour Judge Durward SC DCJ decided that a purchaser of land, by doing nothing, had committed a development offence on the basis that the previous owner had registered an easement only for access over the land but the development approval for reconfiguration of a lot required an easement be provided to allow both access and connection of services/utilities. The Court of Appeal has recently overturned that decision2.
