In Desane Properties v State of New South Wales, the plaintiff owned property in Rozelle that was to be acquired by the NSW government for WestConnex. The NSW Supreme Court held that the acquisition was invalid because the notice of the proposed acquisition given to the owner did not meet the requirements of the Land Acquisition (Just Terms) Compensation Act (NSW). This was because the notice stated that compensation could be expected within 45 days rather than 30 days, and that the notice did not specify the public purpose of the acquisition.
