Forestry Practices Stream
The Forestry Practices Stream of the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal determines matters that previously were determined by the Forest Practices Tribunal under the Forest Practices Act 1985.
The Tribunal has produced a form for the filing of any proceedings under the Forest Practices Act 1985. There is no fee for filing proceedings under the Forest Practices Act 1985.
You should have regard to any timeframes that apply to when you can make an appeal or file proceedings. There are different timeframes to file proceedings depending on the type of appeal.
|Section 9||14 days after the service of a notice|
|Section 13||14 days after the service of the notice|
|Section 14||14 days after the service of the notice|
|Section 25||14 days after service of the relevant notice|
|Section 25C||14 days after the responsible person is served with the notice|
|Section 29||28 days after the decision of the Authority to request or refuse|
|Section 42||2 days after the date of service of the notice upon the person|
The Forestry Practices Stream will follow processes that are very similar to the processes undertaken in the Resource and Planning Stream, and you should have regard to the Information Sheets and Practice Directions under that Stream for guidance as to the processes that will apply.
As a result of the passage of the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2021, the Forestry Practices Stream may now undertake ADR in relation to any proceedings (please see Section 102 and 103 of the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2021). The Information Sheets related to ADR in the Resource and Planning Stream provide details of how that process will take place.
Please note, legal practitioners are permitted to appear in the Forestry Practices Stream (see Section 98 of the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2021).
