Sub-division at FALMOUTH Tasmania
POTENTIAL SUB-DIVISION SITE
The Break O'Day Council is facing enormous pressure from developers and land owners
to further open up this precious coast for ribbon development. The recent boom in land values,
coupled with the influx of mainland tourists, has meant the North East Coast,
known as Tasmania's Suncoast, has been "discovered".
The Break O'Day Planning Scheme, the State Coastal Policy, the Settlement Strategy,
the Marine and Coastal Management Strategy, are all intended to control development
of the coast
so as to protect its special and fragile character.
The reality is that Councils do not adhere to these policies.
It seems public pressure is required.
THIS COAST COULD BE SUB-DIVIDED
Green & Gold Frog
The sub-division site at Falmouth contains a breeding pond for the vulnerable
Green and Gold Frog.
The developer has virtually ignored the importance of this site.
Recently the devastating frog disease Chytrid Fungus has been discovered in Tasmania.
This will put further pressure on the Green & Gold frog, making protection of current habitats more important.
