The Hodgman Government is 'reforming' Tasmania's planning laws to make it easier for developers to gain approvals by weakening protections, watering down assessment rigor and winding back public engagement and opportunities to appeal.

Find out more at an upcoming public meeting.

Time 1.10 pm – 2 pm
Venue Hobart Town Hall, 50 Macquarie Street, Hobart, Tasmania
