February 2018

THE PLANNING Matters Alliance Tasmania (PMAT) will hold a community forum to discuss the implications of the Hodgman Liberal government’s Statewide Planning Scheme, due to be implemented in 2018.

The forum will be held at 7.00pm on Wednesday, 21st of February, at the Rotary Pavilion, Alveston Drive, Deloraine.

PMAT comprises 57 member groups from across Tasmania. The membership is diverse, with representatives from welfare, recreation, environment, urban/rural/local community associations, ratepayers, European built heritage, and ‘friends of ...’ groups all getting involved.

PMAT are concerned that the proposed Statewide Planning Scheme weakens protections for the places we live in, the Tasmanian places we love, and the uniqueness that is drawing increasing visitor numbers to this state.

Everyone is invited to the meeting. For more information about the event, contact Sophie Underwood on 0407 501 999 or sophie_ underwood@hotmail.com.
