Council Decision - Shame! Shame! Shame!
Shame! Shame! Shame! was the cry from the packed public gallery after 6 aldermen voted down the officers' recommendations at the Council meeting on the 19th August. Not one of the 6 said a word. The are aldermen Zucco, Behrakis, Denison, Sexton, Thomas, and Sherlock.
HnH is determined - our campaign against high-rise towers will continue.
The Poll of Electors was a wonderful result! There was massive support in favour of height limits and preserving Hobart as a low-rise heritage city - ignored by 6 silent aldermen.

For the past 2 years HnH has helped the people of Hobart lobby the City of Hobart's Aldermen to strengthen the planning schemes to ban highrise towers in Hobart and to protect Hobart's heritage buildings, viewlines, and streetscapes.
With such an overwhelming result, HnH fully expected Council to implement the officers' recommendations. Shame! Shame! Shame!
Hobart Not Highrise Inc. was set up to prevent a rash of developments that ignore building height rules and threaten the human scale, heritage values, and skyline of our beautiful city.
