A North East farmers and resident group will appeal the development application of a proposed heritage rail and bike trail compromise after the Legislative Council revealed its solution to the development stalemate.
North East Residents and Farmers Tasmania chairman Stuart Bryce said the group was adamant in its opposition to any form of cycle track along the existing line and would appeal the application.
When asked if he would support any compromised solution Mr Bryce answered simply: "No."
"I represent the farmers and they have made it really clear they don't want a cycle track so I have to support them in their wishes," he said.
The compromise proposal, put forward after a Legislative Council inquiry into the matter, was first put forward by the Dorset Council in 2014.
