Alternative dispute resolution service
Planning and Environment Court - civil
The court’s ADR Registrar is a qualified mediator and is available to:
- conduct case management conferences
- chair 'without prejudice' conferences
- chair meetings of experts
- conduct mediations.
These services are free to parties involved in P&E Court matters. Parties can access the service:
- if all parties in the case request a referral to ADR
- by order of the court.
Parties can access private ADR or engage in private 'without prejudice' negotiations without the assistance of the ADR registrar.
The court encourages early case management / 'without prejudice' conferences, especially those involving self represented parties.
