Requesting an appearance by phone
The Planning and Environment Court (P and E Court) may allow 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, contact the Associate of the presiding judge no later than 12pm the day before the review so appropriate bookings can be made. The associate will give you the details on how to call into the court.
Ideally, you should make your request by email.
Unless the Associate gives you different instructions, on the day of the review:
- 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).
- 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.
- 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 bailiff calls in from the courtroom.
- Wait for the judge enter the courtroom and call the list. The judge is likely to call matters involving phone appearances first.
- Announce your appearance when your matter is called.
- To help reduce background noise in the court, until your matter is called, place your phone on mute, not hold.
