Land and Environment Court clears the way for Belongil wall

THE construction of a rock wall at Belongil Beach looks set to go ahead with the application for an injunction to stop construction failing today in the Land and Environment Court in Sydney.

Karl Goodsell from the environment group Positive Change For Marne Life, who brought the action through the Environmental Defenders Office, said he was disappointed at today's decision.

"The judge said that if rock walls can be built, then they can be taken down," said Mr Goodsell.

"We look forward to reading the judge's decision over the next days to work out if we can take further action in the future."

PCFML had argued that a full Environmental Impact Statement should have been undertaken before Council agreed to the wall's construction.
