Submission: Administrative Decisions (Judicial Review) Amendment Bill 2013

May 2013

The EDO is of the view that the current restrictive standing provision in the Administrative Decisions (Judicial Review) Act 1989 (ACT) operates to limit accountability to the community a propos government decision-making (affecting the environment). The ADJR Bill clearly has the capacity to bring about a positive change by means of the extension it gives to the use of judicial review as a statutory tool. The result will be a greater scrutiny of government decisions and consequently greater transparency and accountability.
