Amelia is a Senior Associate in our Planning, Environment and Sustainability group specialising in town planning, development and environmental law and has significant experience in land acquisition and compensation matters.

Amelia has acted for clients ranging from property developers to government departments, with particular experience in advising local governments.

Amelia is known for her successes in appeals and enforcement proceedings in the Planning and Environment Court, Land Court and Magistrates Court, as well as her forwardthinking advice surrounding strategic planning, development assessment and infrastructure delivery.

Amelia believes in the provision of straightforward, practical advice to her clients which delivers on both commercial and community objectives.

Examples of Amelia’s experience include the following:

  • assisted with the legal review of environmental impact statements on behalf of resource clients
  • advised a resources client about the approvals process and various legislative and planning scheme constraints (including constraints applying to strategic cropping land) relating to the construction of a rail spur, including undertaking a legal review of the development application material prior to lodgement
  • advised and acted for a resources client in the Land Court with respect to objections against its application to amend an environmental authority

  • advised and acted for a resources client in the Land Court with respect to objections against its application to amend an environmental authority
  • acted for a large privately owned petrol distributor and retail operator in its claims for compensation for the taking of land and its service station business. Both claims were referred to the Land Court for determination and settled before the matters were set down for hearing. The claim for compensation relating to the business was significant and complicated by the fact the entire business was sold to a third party after the land was compulsorily acquired
  • assisted with providing strategic advice to and acted for Brisbane City Council as the constructing authority in claims for compensation arising from Council’s compulsory acquisition of land for the construction of the Hale Street Link.

This included preparing for and attending the hearing of the applications for the determination of compensation in the Land Court, which involved multiple parties and expert witnesses in various fields of expertise.
