Mount Wellington cable car
 

17th May 2018

As MWCC are considering a shortened route I have sought advice as to whether the Authority that allows it to undertake site investigations for the purposes of preparing a planning application to the Hobart City Council needs to be reconsidered, modified or rescinded.

While I note the company has not yet formally determined the final route, I advised the MWCC late yesterday that it will need to apply for a new Authority should they wish to proceed with a shortened route.

The government is supportive of a cable car for kunanyi/Mount Wellington and I will now await the MWCC’s decision on whether it will continue with the route comprising a terminal in the vicinity of Cascade, or whether it wishes to proceed on the basis of a shortened route within the confines of the Park.
