"Thank you for hosting a public meeting about this very important issue. The proposed Woodchip Export Facility at Strathblane would be a major development in Tasmania’s Far South with detrimental impacts on the marine and forest environments, wildlife that depend on these environments, community members and visitors to Southern Tasmania.

Bob Brown Foundation hosted public meetings in Cygnet, Huonville, Hobart and on Bruny Island in June 2018 to raise awareness about the proposed woodchip export facility. More than 250 people attended the meetings. At the Huonville, Hobart and Bruny Island meetings a motion was passed in a majority, the attendees do not want a woodchip export facility in Dover. Particularly noteworthy, was the 115 people in Huonville Town Hall on the 19 June, that voted NO to this proposed development."
