East Coast Alliance


Stop the SAP

The beautiful Tasmanian coastal community of Swansea and its irreplaceable natural environment is under threat from inappropriate and unsustainable development.

The East Coast Alliance is challenging the rezoning and changes to planning laws proposed in the Cambria Estate Draft Amendment, which includes the Specific Area Plan (SAP) and other planning scheme amendments. If approved, the SAP will override existing planning schemes and create over 3,100 hectares of quarantined development (that’s 31 square kilometres).

Is this the East Coast we want? Is this the Tasmania we want for future generations?


The Cambria fight is far from over!

The East Coast Alliance is looking forward to presenting its strong concerns about the Cambria Green Draft Amendment and proposed development to the independent Tasmanian Planning Commission. The final decision sits with the Tasmanian Planning Commission, NOT Glamorgan Spring Bay Council.

We want to assure all our supporters - the fight to protect Tasmania's East Coast from a large scaled, inappropriate development is NOT over. We remain determined to continue opposing the proposed rezoning of more than 3,100 hectares of land to facilitate a mega tourist development.

To succeed we need your generosity

We now must raise significant funds to support that fight and we ask you, our loyal supporters, to PLEASE GIVE to help our campaign. Visit our DONATION page for information about our campaign strategy and costs.

Our target

We need to raise a minimum of $25,000 to ensure the East Coast Alliance presents a powerful, informed and compelling case to the Tasmanian Planning Commission. Your contribution, small or large, will be critical to our success. Every donation will make a difference.

Thank you

We want to extend a huge thank you to the many generous members of the community - far and wide - who have already donated to support our campaign, and taken the time to write to Councillors and politicians.
