The appeal of the Rosny Hill Tourism Development to the Resource Management Planning Appeals Tribunal will not proceed today.

TCT has withdrawn from the appeal and will not be party to its settlement.

“We cannot discuss the details and proceedings of the appeal, but we are very disappointed that Clarence City Council are proceeding with this firesale of public land.

“Rosny Hill is a publicly owned nature recreation area, and no part of it should be gifted to a private developer for private profit.

“Clarence City Council has worked hand in glove with Hunter Developments, repeatedly sidelining the local community and others concerned about losing their much loved local reserve.

“Whilst the appeal has concluded, the result is in no way an endorsement of the development.

“The appeal process demonstrates that Clarence City Council is willing to bend over backwards to get this development in a public reserve into private hands

“The Tasmanian Conservation Trust remains completely opposed to this development.

“At 300m long this development is greedy. It is too big for the reserve, it destroys the natural values and locals’ enjoyment of this area; all for a few more tourist dollars.

“We wish to thank all of those people who worked hard and contributed to the appeal, but also to tell them TCT has no intention of stopping the fight here.

“We have requested legal advice regarding a further challenge in the supreme court. We are actively considering other avenues to prevent this outrageous land grab by Hunter Developments.

“TCT will continue to work with the Rosny Hill Friends Network and our other partners to stop councils and the state government in their firesale of public land to private developers, their negative impacts on biodiversity and to protect Tasmania from over-development.
