The participation of Labor Leader Rebecca White and Greens planning spokesperson Rosalie Woodruff in a public forum on Planning reforms in Bicheno this weekend highlights the significance of the issue as parliament finishes its last sitting before the 2018 state election.
The event, hosted by the Planning Matters Alliance of Tasmania (PMAT), will feature an overview of issues underlying the new Statewide Planning Scheme and what it means for people on the east coast. This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A including the political representatives and local experts.
With planning issues identified as playing a significant role in the outcome of the recent Pembroke by-election, there is much interest in planning as Tasmania heads to the polls.
