By working together we can reinstate robust planning laws that
protect the special things that make the Tasmania we all love.
Join the campaign to ensure the Tasmanian community has a strong role in planning decisions and shaping the future of the state.

Your donation allows us to build alliances with groups around Tasmania. The Planning Matters Alliance works to create a Tasmanian planning system that is fair and equal for all.
The Planning Matters Alliance Tasmania (PMAT) is a growing network of over 40 community groups from across Tasmania, united with a common concern over the weakening of the state’s planning rules. The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is set to come into effect in early 2018 and PMAT is committed to making it better.
The level of collaboration and solidarity emerging within this planning campaign and the groups involved is unprecedented in Tasmania and crosses community group genres.
Epitomised by the conflict over high rise hotels in Hobart, but equally relevant to our towns and backyards, our skylines, our coastlines, our heritage buildings and places and our wild and inspiring landscapes, the scheme will impact all the things we love about Tasmania.
Planning is vitally important to a wide cross section of the Tasmanian community. From a standing start, PMAT has put the issue on the agenda and made it an election issue. Please read our briefing paper which outlines the implementation status of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme and some of the key issues associated with the scheme.
