The Planning Matters Alliance Tasmania (PMAT) is a growing network of 59 community groups from across Tasmania. 

The PMAT is 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 2019 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: Recreation, Environment, Urban/local community associations, European built heritage, rate payers and Friends of groups.
