Abstract

People fall in love with places.

Politicians and planners who ignore these love affairs do so at their peril.

The attachments of people to Lake Pedder, Battery Point, the Franklin River, Ralphs Bay, the Tamar Valley, Freycinet National Park, kunanyi, and the forests of the Florentine and Tarkine make those in love very upset when developers want to make money by trashing their loved ones, even if environmental assessments reveal no "values" in the conventional sense.
