The first Part of Volume 18 of LGLJ includes two interesting articles. The first comes from Sarah Withnall Howe and examines the 2011 review of the Western Australian Local Government Standards Panel. The second is by Zada Lipman and Melissa Farrugia and discusses obligation to report and disclose information about particular activities that cause or threaten pollution. There is also a Digest of Cases and the Local Government and Planning Law Guide Cases section, including “Supreme Court and Equivalent Decisions” and “Merits Appeals”.
The latest Part of the Local Government Law Journal publishes an article by Peter Williams arguing for consistency of State government policy in the area of property and development rights, and that, irrespective of State government intransigence, effective transferable development rights schemes are possible. It also includes an article by Sarah Withnall Howe which discusses how the multiple heads of local government within WA hinders the monitoring of local government corruption issues. There is also a Digest of Cases and Merits Appeals section.
