Rosny Hill Friends Network - new proposal for Rosny Hill reserve
23 August 2019
Today we have submitted a development application to the Clarence City Council
for our Re-imagining Rosny Hill Concept Master Plan.
We are concerned that the current tourism hotel development proposal would be too big and damaging for this small hill top which is reserved for nature, recreation and education.
President Beth Rees said that the community is fed up with large, unsuitable proposals being put forward for Rosny Hill.
“We’ve taken the positive step of preparing an alternative proposal that protects the natural environment, provides a beautiful lookout and refreshment for visitors, and supports recreation, health and wellbeing. Our proposal is financially responsible, has community support and, importantly, is consistent with the purpose of reservation of Rosny Hill under Tasmania’s Nature Conservation Act” said Ms Rees.

Details of the Master Plan.
The group is fully aware, because we surveyed our community, that the major concerns with this Nature Recreation Area are anti social behaviour, mainly as cars doing burnouts, and littering. These do not need a tourist hotel to prevent them. In 2011, In the RHNRA Management Strategy, Council expressed its intention of exploring a boom gate. Since then the community has heard little more about this. Indeed the first bin was installed at the lookout only in 2018.
We must reproduce the concept plan as individual pictures, but if you are on our mailing list, contact us at email@example.com for more information.
