Proposed Sub-division of Farmland

A proposed sub-division of farmland at Falmouth township boundary
threatens destruction of beautiful coastline in North East Tasmania.


Break O'Day Council gave approval on 18th January 2005 for the sub-division of a parcel of farmland at Franks St Falmouth into 10 housing allotments.

The permit conditions prevent any further sub-division of the remaining title, which extends from Falmouth township along the coast to Four Mile Creek.

However, the landowner, Glencoe Enstone Park Pastoral Co Pty Ltd has appealed against the condition preventing any further sub-division. The appeal will be heard by the Resource Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal on the 19th April in St Helens.

A group of Falmouth residents and the Tasmanian Conservation Trust
are appealing against the sub-division and at the same time defending the Council's condition that no further sub-division of the remainder of the title will be allowed.

If the developer is successful in having the restraint against further sub-division squashed,
then the way is left open for further sub-division of important rural coastal land between
Falmouth and Four Mile Creek. (See pictures next page)
