Copley challenged Logan City Council’s approval of a development application in an Australian state court asserting that the proposed homes violated the Local Government (Planning and Environment) Act of 1990 because they were impermissibly susceptible to flooding due to the impacts of climate change. The applicants motioned to strike the challenge. The judge denied the motion and permitted a substantive hearing on the issue.
