Recherche Bay Discussions - Paul Lennon, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Recherche Bay Discussions - Paul Lennon, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Premier Paul Lennon has confirmed the State Government is negotiating to protect the historically-significant Recherche Bay area.

Mr Lennon said today he had become involved more than a week ago in discussions with businessman Dick Smith, the Vernon family, which owns the land, and Tasmanian Land Conservancy.


“Today, I took recommendations to Cabinet aimed at resolving the outstanding issues."


Mr Lennon said the Government recognised that the community wanted a balance between sustainable development and protecting our natural and historical heritage.


“We recognise that this site has historical importance and, if possible, should be preserved.


“All of the people involved in the discussions are showing a great deal of goodwill, and I’m confident we will be able to announce a conclusion within days.”
