The Land and Environment Court aims to meet its own standards for the different classes of its jurisdiction. These are:
Classes 1, 2 and 3: 95% of applications should be disposed of within 6 months of filing.
Classes 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8: 95% of applications to be disposed of within 8 months of filing.

No lodgments pending completion are to be more than 24 months old (that is, 100% disposed of within 24 months).
The Court also aims to deliver reserved judgments within three months of the judgment being reserved.
