Mediation – joint statement 18.8.2011


After a constructive day in mediation, led by the Hon Michael McHugh AC QC, the City of Newcastle and Save Our Figs mediation teams have agreed that the option of third party determination, to resolve the issue of the risk posed by the Laman Street Trees, will be referred to the elected Council.

 An extraordinary meeting of Council will be called and a report to consider the option of third party determination will be put to the elected Council, without a specific recommendation.

 Any determination will be required to be reported back to the elected Council for consideration.

 Both parties are extremely grateful for the assistance of Mr McHugh and agreed that his presence throughout the day was invaluable. Home
