Pulp Mill Permits Expire - TAP Media Release

MEDIA RELEASE  4 Sept. 2017
TAP into a better Tasmania

The pulp mill proposed by Gunns for the Tamar Valley was never a viable proposition according to the President of TAP, Mr Tim Thorne.
"It would have been disastrous both economically and environmentally," he said.
"Now that the permits have expired, residents of the Tamar Valley can get on with their lives without the shadow of this monstrosity hanging over them," Mr Thorne declared.
"The pity is that tens of millions of dollars, including State Government funds, were drained from the local economy during the cynical exercise which constituted this absurd proposal."
