Applicant challenged the denial of a planning permit application to construct an apartment building in an Australian state court. The County’s planning scheme requires plans to take into account sea level rise and other coastal hazards associated with climate change. The court found that no assessment was necessary because the flood risks were low. Based on this and other non-climate issues, the court granted the permit subject to conditions including stormwater drainage requirements.
