RSL Tasmania’s position of location of proposed AFL stadium, Hobart Cenotaph

RSL Tasmania provided the Premier of Tasmania a letter on the 27th February outlining our opposition to the proposed location of a stadium near the Hobart Cenotaph. As mentioned, RSL Tasmania is supportive of the AFL and of a stadium or stadiums in Tasmania, but not at a such a site of such cultural impact.

Please see the letter in full below: RSL Tasmania, Hobart Cenotaph and Proposed Stadium

John Hardy, CEO of RSL Tasmania spoke this morning with ABC radio regarding its position on the proposed stadium near the Hobart Cenotaph.
