kunanyi / Mt Wellington remains cable car free
Following a comprehensive rejection of the cable car development on 21 grounds of planning and management non-compliance, the Mount Wellington Cableway Company appealed to the Resource Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal (RMPAT) now known as Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (TASCAT).
On 03/11/22 TASCAT ruled to uphold the City of Hobart’s decision to reject MWCC’s unwanted & inappropriate cable car proposal for kunanyi / Mt Wellington.
THANK YOU !
TASCAT’s 2022 decision to uphold the City of Hobart’s decision to reject the cable car proposal was a massive victory demonstrating the power of community & the importance of belief, persistence & fighting for what you believe in. Thank you all for helping to keep kunanyi wild.
Now in 2023 the fight may not yet be over with Premier Jeremy Rockliff recently voicing his desire to approve the cable car, against the science, planning advice and clear opposition of Hobartians and the Aboriginal Community.
WELLINGTON PARK MANAGEMENT PLAN REVIEW:
The Wellington Park Management Trust has begun a review of the Wellington Park Management Plan. You can review information at https://wellingtonpark.org.au/management-plan-review
The process has started with a review of the values within the park which takes the form of a survey. In the comments section you can add your own comments like – “the Management Plan should be changed to explicitly prohibit a cable car across the Organ Pipes and prohibit construction of any large structures on the Pinnacle.” If you feel the values that have been set out are wrong or not complete, then have your say. You can also make a more detailed submission adding values that you might feel are important. The review of values closes on 15th Sept 2023. Click HERE for the current park values.
This process will take time and a draft management plan is not expected until early 2025. Please get involved and thank you for being part of the continuing fight to protect the mountain.
