The latest appeal against Stockland's Sandon Point development was dismissed on November 25, clearing the way for development.

The case has been in the Land and Environment Court since August.

The appeal was launched by the Sandon Point Aboriginal Tent Embassy (SPATE), which has been campaigning against the development for 10 years.

The community campaign has opposed the Sandon Point development because of impacts on the environment and Indigenous cultural heritage, as well as a lack of transparency and democracy in the approval process.

SPATE is organising the "3 Fires 2 Moons" festival celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Tent Embassy over December 17-19. For more information contact Dan Jones on 0429 682 069 or email .
