Application by Port Corporation on class action deferred

A JUDGE has adjourned a Gladstone Port Corporation application to strike out a class action involving 51 fishermen seeking compensation for losing their fishing grounds.

Judge Michael Rackemann was set to hear the application on Monday and determine some preliminary matters ahead of a hearing in the matter.

But after the parties had some discussions, more paperwork will change hands before a further application date on April 15.

The case centres on the Coordinator-General's approval conditions for the Western Basin dredging project, which demand the port provide compensation for losing local fishing grounds.

The port has had a compensation process open for several months, but Gladstone fisherman Trevor Falzon is  challenging whether the program has offered enough.
