Judicial review of administrative action can be used to challenge a development approval if it can be shown that proper processes have not been followed (eg. where a local council fails to properly advertise a development application). A typical outcome of judicial review would be a court order that the local council remedy any irregularities in its assessment process. This type of appeal usually needs to be instituted in the Supreme Court rather than the Environment Resources and Development Court.
