help us maintain the momentum!

We need your help to maintain awareness with decision makers and the media of the community’s concerns about the Cambria Green SAP.

Current media requiring a response:

To assist with letter writing we have prepared dot points as a response to a Mercury 23 March Talking Point by Cambria proponent Ronald Hu. An excellent Mercury 30 March Talking Point by Nick Haddow - Living and breathing the Tassie Brand - provides the alternate view. Mr Haddow’s article articulates well why the East Coast and our magical island of Tasmania are such special and unique places deserving of protection.

We are grateful to the many individuals who have already written to MPs and forwarded excellent Letters to the Editor at The Mercury and The Examiner - thank you - but we must keep up the pressure!

As we wait for the Tasmanian Planning Commission hearings, it’s critical we continue to respectfully influence State MPs by expressing our concerns about the potential impact of this mega-development should the draft SAP be approved.


You can have a huge impact by sending a message to politicians. The more letters and emails they receive, the more they must listen and respond to the community.

We’ve put together some information to assist:

  • Click here for the MP contact list and here for a letter to MPs to use as a guide


Attach a signed letter to your email or include a digital signature (if possible). Signatures give more weight and distinguish your letter from a mass letter writing campaign. 

Hard copies:

  • For MPs, post to Parliament of Tasmania, Hobart TAS 7000

Always ask for a written response and follow up by phone if not received in 10 days.

Make sure you keep a copy of your letter and copy your letter to the ECA (

Never accept ‘no’ from your local member. Whether you are a constituent raising a local electoral matter, a ratepayer or a concerned citizen, MPs and Councillors are expected to respond.
