You may remember in the heat of the 2014 October local government elections I was the lone Alderman that voted against the Hobart City Council’s development application for Stage One of the Battery Point Shared Accessway ( HERE ).
This blog asks what lessons that might possibly be considered and suggests some ways forward. I don’t think this saga is over yet. Flick to the end if you want a quick summary and possible less costly solutions.
I’ve waited on commenting for two reasons. Firstly Hobart City Council still had to decide whether it would appeal the Tribunal’s decision in the Supreme Court. After more expensive legal advice, it won’t. At least not in this iteration.
