Our current campaign - presenting our case to the Tasmanian Planning Commission
The East Coast Alliance is now focused on presenting our strong concerns about the Cambria Green Draft Amendment and proposed development to the independent Tasmanian Planning Commission for a final decision.
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.
That means we need your help more than ever to ensure our campaign against the Cambria Green Specific Area Plan proposed rezoning is strong, professional and effective.
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.
Why do we need to raise these funds?
We must present a powerful, informed case to the Tasmanian Planning Commission. To do this, it’s critical we have the best possible advice and representation:
Our Planners will represent the East Coast Alliance at the Commission’s Directional Hearings in Swansea on 14 December.
They will then be required to appear on our behalf for up to 5 days (or more) at the Commission’s main hearings in 2019 (dates to be confirmed).
To further strengthen our case, our planners have advised we need to engage a number of other professionals with expertise in key fields relating to the Cambria Green proposal.
We may also require legal representation.
Please donate to protect the irreplaceable values of East Coast Tasmania.
