A COURT in New South Wales has upheld the right of a group of residents to appeal against the Moorebank Intermodal Project.

In December last year, the Planning Assessment Commission of New South Wales, acting for the state planning minister, granted consent to develop Stage 1 of the SIMTA Moorebank Intermodal.

A group called Residents Against Intermodal Development Moorebank Inc (RAIDM Inc), filed an appeal against the PAC decision.

Moorebank proponent, Qube Holdings, filed a notice of motion for the RAIDM appeal to be dismissed, arguing RAIDM Inc had no standing to appeal.

In a ruling handed down earlier this week, the New South Wales Court of Appeal found in favour of RAIDM and against Qube, granting leave to appeal and dismissing the appeal with costs also awarded.
