Statement on legal advice regarding Kin Kin Quarry


A “without prejudice” legal discussion has been held between Noosa Council officials and representatives from Cordwell Resources – operators of the Kin Kin quarry.

Due to COVID restrictions and lockdowns, it was the first time the two parties have managed to arrange a suitable time to hold such talks with their legal representation.

At Tuesday’s (August 24) Kin Kin Roundtable, members were told the talks considered possible options to prevent proceedings being filed in the Planning and Environment Court.

Last week’s discussions would remain confidential to allow both parties to consider their options, prior to any proceedings being lodged.

The community has gathered detailed evidence over several months.

Mayor Clare Stewart said Council has advised Cordwells and members of the Kin Kin Roundtable that there are plans to commence proceedings in the Planning and Environment Court in approximately three weeks, if further agreements haven’t been reached.

Council is unable to make any further comment at this stage
