Please see two documents regarding the proposed changes to the Tasmanian State Coastal Policy 1996 and the proposed Robbins Island wind farm:

  1. Joint media Release: State Government must not legislate to kill ongoing court case over Robbins Island wind farm, 11 June 2024.
  2. PMAT Background Report regarding Robbins Island proposed wind farm and the proposed changes to the Tasmanian State Coastal Policy (Version 1.1). 

Today, Tasmanian conservation organisations called on the State Government to:

  1. The State Government immediately stops its attempt to amend the Tasmanian State Coastal Policy, ensuring there is no impact to the Robbins Island Supreme Court case.
  2. Any proposed changes to the Tasmanian State Coastal Policy must follow the existing, legislated public consultation process.
  3. If, as the State Government asserts, the legality of existing structures such as jetties and wharves is in doubt, they have a responsibility to the Tasmanian community to release the legal arguments (if not the legal advice) supporting these assertions to ensure transparency in the proposal.
