The Tarkine National Coalition would have no right to appeal against Shree Minerals’ mining development in the North West under a majority Liberal Government, Deputy Opposition Leader Jeremy Rockliff said.

“Under our single state-wide planning scheme, we will crack down on this sort of vexatious third party appeal.”

“Appeal rights will be retained for legitimate affected third parties, but a front-group set up with the express purpose of opposing development, such as the Tarkine National Coalition, does not meet that criteria.” Mr. Rockliff said.

“This initiative is another part of the Liberals’ plan to cut Green tape and helps make Tasmania open for business again.” Mr. Rockliff said.
