One of the biggest concerns they have is the loss of community right to challenge bad planning and development decisions, even in the case of legal error.

The new laws will also deny legal scrutiny of major Ministerial decisions (concerns about bad Ministerial decisions was a major impetus for reform in the first place). An example of this could be if a Minister made a decision to benefit a friend, that would not be subject to public scrutiny.
