Media Release: Bob Brown Foundation joins legal battle to defend kunanyi / Mt Wellington

BBF today announced it will apply to join and oppose any appeal brought by the Mt Wellington Cable Car company against the decision of Hobart City Council to reject the development.

"The Bob Brown Foundation will join the appeal because of its concern about the exploitation of public land for private profit, because of the horrific visual impact of the proposal, and because this development is offensive to aboriginal Tasmanians. kunanyi / Mt Wellington is a place of immense beauty, it's also an important conservation reserve in the Hobart region. A mega development like the cable car would destroy many of the ecological values which make the mountain unique," said  Bob Brown Foundation CEO Steven Chaffer.
