Consent orders

A consent order is an Environment Court order that endorses agreements reached by the parties during mediation and any subsequent negotiations. When appeals are resolved, consent orders will be issued by the Environment Court and will be recorded below. When a consent order contains rules, these rules must now be treated as operative (and any previous rule as inoperative).
