On behalf of the Resource Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal, we welcome you to the Australasian Conference of Planning and Environment Courts and Tribunals for 2014.  We are delighted to once again host ACPECT and look forward to unabashedly showing off the wonders of Tasmania in autumn; a famously beautiful time of year here. 

In attempting to settle on a theme for the conference, it was thought to play to Tasmania‚Äôs strengths; built and natural heritage.  One of the great strengths of these conferences is the opportunity they present for delegates to discuss complex or difficult issues that are current and common to all jurisdictions.  In calling for papers, we therefore do not want to restrict topics for discussion and welcome all papers on any subjects delegates may wish to offer.


Please check the website regularly as it will be updated as planning proceeds.
