•  Heritage Tasmania’s works manager Ian Boersma said the subdivision was adjacent to Ancanthe Park, which contains the Lady Franklin Gallery, a place on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. He said the council should try to ensure the setting was preserved, interpreted and celebrated. (The Barbarians may not be at the gates, HERE)

“We feel that the proposed subdivision will complete the process of erosion that is in danger of severing the links between Lady Franklin’s gallery [home of the Tasmanian Natural History Society], the lands around the gallery and those which extend up to the foothills of Mt Wellington,” Mr Boersma said.

“This landscape has the potential to be a landscape of national significance and is one of the earliest colonial landscapes in Tasmania.

What if ...
• Heritage Tasmania’s works manager Ian Boersma said the proposed logging was adjacent to an extensive old sawmill and logging precinct which contains a remnant tramway to the Liffey River which should be placed on the Tasmanian Heritage Register, as well as extensive indigenous rock shelters.

He said Forestry Tasmania should try to ensure the setting was preserved, interpreted and celebrated.

“We feel that the proposed logging of the surrounding 40 hectares will complete the process of erosion that is in danger of severing the links between the sawmill, logging roads/bridges,  the tramway,  and the lands around the indigenous rock shelters and those which extend to the central Plateau Conservation Area and the Liffey Falls WHA.

“This landscape has the potential to be a landscape of national significance and is one of the best examples of pioneering colonial landscapes in Tasmania.”
