The planning or environmental law that is the basis of proceedings in court will state who has the right to bring civil enforcement proceedings (for the full list, see
What is civil enforcement by the Court? and
What is judicial review by the Court?).
s 123 of the
Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 allows any person to bring proceedings for an order to remedy or restrain a breach of the statute, whether or not any right of that person has been or may be infringed by or as a consequence of the breach (
s 123(1) ).
The people who are entitled to bring judicial review proceedings may also be specified by the statute under which the decision or conduct to be reviewed was made or carried out. These statutes are specified in
s 20(3) of the Court Act (for the full list, see
What is judicial review by the Court?). If the statute does not specify the person, the common law test for the standing of persons to bring judicial review proceedings will apply.
