Developers/proponents will always talk a big game right up until the moment a project falls flat. It's just how they roll. Like how climbers wax optimistic driving to the crag before getting humiliated on a route.

One thing the Gunns debacle made clear is that obtaining planning approval (via novel, bastardised means) is one thing, but if the project is a dog, no would-be proponent or investor will pony up when it comes to the crunch. Although I agree that Tassie's history in bending over to accommodate almost any form of development means it's within the realms of possibility that the government would attempt to screw taxpayers and the State by bankrolling future losses.

I'll definitely be putting in a submission, along with all of my relatives in Tas.
