Read the latest edition of the EDO Tas Bulletin for updates on the bushfires, Lake Malbena proposal, MDB Royal Commission, Storm Bay, anti-protest and biosecurity laws (and more), plus a bunch of Good Reads to get stuck into over the weekend.
It has been a very heated start to the New Year. The Island State that we love, is under increasing threat with fires burning in multiple locations.
In the first EDO Tas Bulletin of 2019, get updated with the latest environmental and planning news, interesting reads and podcasts..
Watch this space! We’ve included some environmental policy and cases to watch out for in 2019 – Global Climate Action, the Federal Election, World Heritage Tourism Master-plan, Lake Malbena Court Case and much more..
It’s been a big year. Round it out with all the latest environmental and planning law updates and a bumper list of summer reading in the last EDO Tas Bulletin for 2018.
We also bid a fond farewell to our long-term Principal Lawyer, Jess, and welcome the new team.
The EDO Tasmania office will be closed from 24 December 2018 while we get outdoors and recharge our batteries. We’ll be back on 7 January 2019 for another year of using the law to protect this beautiful island.
On 17 December 2018, changes to the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 took effect which provide for a new instrument – the Tasmanian Planning Policies. Read our new fact sheet to find out more about the TPPs, how they will be made, and what effect they will have.

Ease your way into the weekend with the latest EDO Tasmania Bulletin – all the recent environmental happening in Tas and beyond.
Also, last chance to support our Point to Pinnacle team for the climb up kunanyi / Mt Wellington on Sunday. It’s a long way to the top if we wanna meet our goal (if you didn’t sing that with AC/DC stylings, you’re not ready for the weekend).
EDO Tasmania was sad to hear that Hon Murray Wilcox AO QC passed away during the week. His Honour was a quiet but formidable force in environmental law, and was instrumental in establishing the EDO network.
We’ll continue our work to do justice to his legacy. Vale, Murray.
You can read more about this wonderful man in this tribute published earlier this year.
Thanks to everyone who came along to our AGM on Monday evening to hear about what we’ve been up to over the past 12 months and what’s in store for the next year.
We’re delighted to welcome the 2018-19 Management Committee and to announce our new team for 2019. Read all about it in our Annual Report!
