Maryfield land clearing permit ruled invalid


BREAKING NEWS, 4 September 2019

The NT Supreme Court has ruled that the permit to clear more than 20,000 hectares of native vegetation at Maryfield Station is invalid, following our groundbreaking legal challenge on behalf of the Environment Centre NT. 

See our Media Release

The case questioned the legal validity of the decision-making processes which saw the NT’s largest ever land clearing proposal approved without an environmental impact assessment, including on grounds that the EPA failed to properly consider climate change.  Read more about the case here  and read the judgement here

NT law reforms


2019 is set to be a big year for reform to environmental law in the Northern Territory - there are a range of reforms underway including on fracking, environmental impact assessment and approval, pollution and contaminated land, and water. 

We are engaging closely in these reform processes and will be making our submissions publicly available where possible. 

See our Fracking Reforms page for more specific information on the implementation of the 135 Fracking Inquiry recommendations.
