The Liberals’ Statewide Planning Provisions are made by developers, for developers. Their implementation will mean Tasmania risks losing the very values that make it so appealing in the first place.
The Liberals' Planning Scheme lacked any meaningful transparency or real community engagement. It has pandered to developers, and ignored Tasmanians.
Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Heritage spokesperson
The removal of 514 properties from the Tasmanian Heritage Register will weaken heritage protections and fundamentally alter the look, feel and fabric of our towns and cities over time.
Coupled with dramatic changes to state-wide planning, these removals are developer driven and enabled by a Liberal Government that seems to know the price of everything and value of nothing.
Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Planning spokesperson
Twenty community and environment groups are organising a public meeting on Tuesday in Hobart Town Hall, because of their significant concerns about changes to planning in the State.
These groups have a wide cross-section of interests, and have united to protect the values that make Tasmania what we know and love.
Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Planning Spokesperson
A unanimous theme was voiced by people making representations at today's Tasmanian Planning Commission hearings about the Heritage Code.
Its language is so loose it will be a monster for heritage protection, and the "standard" exemptions mean there will be no ability to protect what is special about a place.
