The Central Highland Council’s refusal to grant a permit for the proposed helicopter-accessed tourist accommodation at Lake Malbena did not put an end to this inappropriate development. The proponent is now appealing this decision.
The Tasmanian National Parks Association (TNPA), The Wilderness Society Tasmania (TWS) and some individuals with a longstanding association with Lake Malbena have joined as parties to the appeal. We have taken this significant step because we strongly believe that Council’s decision to refuse a permit to this development should be upheld. See here and here for more information.
In order to put our best case to the Resource Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal, we have engaged the Environment Defenders Office Tasmania (EDO) to represent us. We will also need to call a variety of experts to prepare detailed reports and give evidence and brief specialist barristers. Despite the EDO’s support, legal and expert fees are likely to run into tens of thousands of dollars.
Your donation will help us to meet these costs and to protect Tasmania’s National Parks.
Our fundraising target is $50,000. So far we have raised $13,690. Please give generously.
