Requesting an adjournment of a review

The ADR Registrar has the power to adjourn ‘on the papers’ appeals listed for review, but only for Planning and Environment Court matters.

In Brisbane reviews are held at:

  • 10am every day during a P and E Court applications week; and
  • 9.15am on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in any other week which is not a P and E Court applications week. The only exception is where two application weeks occur within the same month, in which case reviews will not be held on a Thursday during that month.

For review dates of matters being heard outside of Brisbane, contact the local registry

Rules 17 and 18 of Practice Direction 2/2020 (PDF, 216.2 KB) set out how to apply, the information required and the circumstances when an adjournment may be granted.

Please note:

The cut-off time for receipt of an adjournment request is 12pm on the day before it’s listed. If your request is received later than this, it may not be dealt with as the ADR Registrar may be absent from the office, or conducting a without prejudice conference. It is recommended you review the ADR Registrar’s online calendar to see if the ADR Registrar is available to consider your request for an adjournment.

Where possible, include all the information in the body of the email, rather than an attachment.

If your request is granted, the ADR Registrar or List Manager will confirm the adjournment by email.
