Requesting an appearance by phone

The Planning and Environment Court (P and E Court) usually allows out-of-town lawyers, agents and parties to appear at reviews by phone.

Appearance by phone in Brisbane

If you need to appear by phone, arrange it with the associate of the presiding judge no later than the day before the review so appropriate bookings can be made. The associate will give you a PIN to use in the conference call.

Ideally, you should make your request by email.

On the day of the review:

  1. Call 1800 173 224 at 9.10am to connect to the teleconference for the Planning and Environment Court at 9.15am (or five minutes before the specified time).
  2. Listen to a recorded voice welcome you and prompt you to enter the PIN provided by the Associate. Enter the number followed by the hash (#) key.
  3. Wait for the recorded voice to advise that your PIN has been confirmed and connect you to the conference. You’ll hear music until the Associate calls in from the courtroom.
  4. Wait for the judge enter the courtroom and call the list. The judge is likely to call your matter first as it’s a phone appearance.
  5. Announce your appearance when your matter is called.
