THE LIVEABLE HOBART GROUP & THE CABLE CAR PROJECT
20th September 2018
The Liveable Hobart Group supports the concept of a cable car on kunanyi/Mt Wellington. We will
give people with the courage and conviction to create possibility the opportunity to lay their ideas
on the table.
Furthermore, any cable car proponent who needs to include Council owned or controlled land in a
development application should be given Council’s land owner consent to lodge their application.
LHG will also support any cable car proponent making an application to enter Council land for the
purpose of conducting fauna and flora studies of the potential impact of a future cable car project.
LHG calls for respectful and robust consultation with all stakeholders with an interest in the cable car
development, including those opposed to the project. Elected LHG candidates will consult widely
with the community, through a proper and transparent process.
Each LHG candidate acknowledges that all elected aldermen have responsibilities at law to approach
all decision making in relation to an application for a cable car development with an open mind. In
any consideration of a cable car project, all elected LHG candidates will respect and reflect their legal
responsibilities as aldermen and will ensure the best interests of the City are served in any decisions
they are called upon to make.
