Mount Wellington Cableway Company has released its modified proposal to desecrate and profit from kunanyi’s wild beauty, but it’s still a dog of a project.

The developer used a planning loophole, which the Greens have tabled a Bill to close for future developments, to put forward a smaller proposal on which no Tasmanian can have a say.

Thousands of people made representations in opposition to the original Development Application. They are shut out of the planning appeal process now.

It may be a smaller proposed cable car, but it would still deface the mountain and privatise the pinnacle.

You can’t put a shine on a cowpat.
