doctrine of waste is now provided for by statute. Further limits to estates An estate is an example of how interests in land have been fragmented – that is, there are a number of ways to hold an interest in land. While tenure is a way of defining inter- ests based on relationships of service, na- tive title is a means of holding an interest based on a different system of law, and an estate creates an interest in land limited by time. However the holder of an estate may seek to limit that time some more. This is done through adding words to the grant that seek to cut the estate short if a particu- lar event occurs.

Children Decisions about parents’ responsibilities and duties are made in the best interest of the child, based on the Family Law Act.

Before you can apply for a divorce order you must be able to show that you have made appropriate arrangements for any children you have under the age of 18.

LAND COURT OF QUEENSLAND

LAND COURT OF QUEENSLAND

The Court’s approach [8] In cases of a dispute over the applicable rating category, the correct approach was said by Debelle J in South Australian National Football League Inc v City of Charles Sturt to be: “The task of determining the nature of a land use will obviously require an examination of the manner in which the land is being used and, if it has been improved, an examination of the nature of the buildings or improvements or other development on the land and the use which is made of them. If there is more than one use, it is necessary to determine the predominant use of the land: (s176(3)). Given that the enquiry is to determine the nature of the land use, the principles of planning law as to the process involved when determining the nature of a proposed development provide some assistance. The enquiry should not involve a meticulous examination of the details of the likely activities being conducted on the land or any precise cataloguing of them but, instead, should be an enquiry as to what, according to its ordinary terminology, is the appropriate designation of the use of the land and any buildings thereon: see Stephen J in Pioneer Concrete (Qld) Pty Ltd v Brisbane City Council (1980) 145 CLR 485 at 507-508; 44 LGRA 346 at 362-363. Generally speaking, that will often be a useful approach. Of course, each case must be considered according to its own facts and circumstances.

the construction of noncommercial structures of less than 4,000 square feet and the construction or expansion of one, two, or three family homes on improved lots. Ministerial actions, such as the issuance of building permits where no discretion is exercised, are not subject to SEQRA. With respect to other actions, the local lead agency must take a hard look at the potential environmental impacts and, where there may be a significant adverse impact on the environment, prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the proposal or project before granting, conditioning, or denying it. The regulations list certain actions as Type I which are deemed "more likely to require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement" than Unlisted Actions, which are simply not listed in the regulations, as either Type I or Type II actions. Some examples of Type I actions are the adoption of a comprehensive plan or zoning law, changes in allowable uses in any zoning district affecting 25 acres or more and the construction of 50 or more homes not to be connected to public water and sewerage systems.

Sustainability of Common Law

Sustainability of Common Law

Culture can often be a force of inertia. Even though changes may be made to common law entitlements, outcomes can often move less than expected due to the culture. One example is ‘buffers’ (we have economic loss, medical and care buffers!) replacing the general damages for less serious claims after a threshold is introduced. To put it simply, lawyers and judges have an expectation about what an injury is ‘worth’ and follow that expectation. The Queensland CTP experience with economic loss following restrictions on general damages is a case in point.

Ensuring sustainability and fairness in the Queensland workers compensation scheme

o The higher exchange rate will continue to cap exports in 2010. The services sector is expecting the biggest lift, 8.2%, bringing total exports in 2010 to around $57.7 billion. The vast majority of employers who have either not experienced a statutory or common law claim or have only minimal experience in this regard will also particularly feel aggrieved by any increase in premiums. For many employers significant increases will also have a negative impact on their ability to simply run their businesses effectively including by way of investing more in their business or by way of employing more workers.

If I make a report to the police, who will know about it? When you report a crime there will be many police who assist with the investigation and have access to information about the matter. If the alleged offender is charged and the matter goes to court, the police are required by law to give a copy of all evidence to the alleged offender’s defence lawyer. The court process will also involve people such as police prosecutors, court staff and staff from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) having access to evidence and information about the matter.

Adat Law in Designing of Land Law System

Adat Law in Designing of Land Law System

Vol.40, 2015 Government Regulations; e). The Presidential Decree; f). The Regional (Local) Regulation (called Perda in level provincial and district/city). The adat law itself is not part of the hierarchical legislation. The idea of hierarchical legislation as mentioned in the Law No. 12 of 2011 is understood in the context of a binary opposition or top-down relationship that formally granted the meaning of the higher legislation to guide the lower regulation. As a result of it, the higher legislation logically will perform against lower hegemony, even lead to negation. If so, what about the fate of the adat law that is not part of the legislation?. The adat law tends to be erased even though the indigenous people exist before the formation of the state. This of course becomes a problem at the level of affirmation of difference (disparity) with the reality of the condition of the Indonesian nation. Significant differences to negate I am against the other. 1 At this level, it can be seen what he/she wanted to be kept and what was to be removed for the purpose of subduing and master it. Therefore, it is not suitable if the adat law should have been applied the principle of hierarchy. How could the adat law will adjust to the formal laws whereas the adat law has existed longtime before the state and formal law is formed.

Assessing the long term viability of leasehold rural land in Queensland

Assessing the long term viability of leasehold rural land in Queensland

Land holdings in Australia are based on the doctrine of tenure, the feudal system of land management inherited from English common law. An estate in fee simple, commonly referred to as freehold land ownership is by virtue of a grant by the crown. All land which is not the subject of such a grant remains as Crown land and may be subject to a crown or state lease or some other tenure type. The introduction of crown or state leases in Australia is largely due to Australia’s history and geography. In the early days of the colony of New South Wales pastoral land was held under tickets of occupation which later became annual licenses. This was a predecessor to the tenured lease that we are familiar with today (ABS, 2009). In Queensland the notion of crown leasehold land was largely borne from a desire by the

South East Queensland waterways, land use and slope analysis

A GIS is a useful way of incorporating large quantities of data into a single analysis. This presents the cumulative picture for the chosen landscape, in a pragmatic, highly visual way. This aids understanding and decision-making among both expert and non-expert users. The reliability of these insights provided by a GIS depends to a large degree upon the quality, quantity and spatial scales of the available data, and the suitability of the methodologies and analyses applied. Environmental sustainability priorities may also be strongly related to physical geographic features, the potential impacts on which can be mapped in a GIS (CASA, 2002).

Land Law

Land Law

The common law system of conveyancing, together with its system of registration under the RODA, was found to be defective in many respects. One of the main criticisms was that the checking of title still remained long and laborious, making it a costly process. Each and every deed had to be carefully scrutinised, down to a “good root‟ of title, and the same process had to be repeated for each and every successive transaction. It was to obviate these difficulties that Sir Robert Torrens initiated a new system of conveyancing in South Australia. This system soon spread to the rest of Australia and many parts of the world, including Singapore.
