This webinar focuses on Queensland and Tasmania DDA Cases + Panel Discussion with Bryce Tolliday, Michael Small and our panel and was recorded on Wednesday 17th August 2022 starting at 12 noon (AEST Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra time)
Bryce will discuss the Ryan V SCHHS complaint, a complaint made by a Blind man who alleged discrimination in access to the built environment, which was eventually heard in the Federal Circuit Court in Brisbane.
Michael will discuss the history of the Parliament Square complaint by David Cawthorn including the outcome of the High Court case. This raised constitutional questions about Tribunal authority to hear complaints in relation to matters covered by Federal regulation and the authority of states to impose access requirements in excess of those in Federal regulation. He will also outline the basis for David’s complaint, discuss the questions raised by the developer about the coverage of the development by the Premises Standards and NCC and provide information on what is next in this 6 year David and Goliath battle.
Following the presentations, there will be a panel discussion and a chance to ask questions of the speakers and the panel.
Our panel will include:
- John Deshon
- Howard Moutrie
- Chris Porter
- Patricia Flores
All times are in AEST – Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne
