Building Height Standard Review

At its meeting on 15 April 2019, the Council considered a report on the outcomes of the meeting with the Minister and agreed to work with the State Government to develop a Precinct Plan to guide future development and provision of public infrastructure in central Hobart.

On 6 May 2019, Council reaffirmed its decision to work with the State Government to develop a Precinct Plan for Central Hobart and also resolved not to initiate the planning scheme amendments provided in Attachment B to item 8.2 of the Open City Planning Committee agenda of 10 December 2018 to the Hobart Interim Planning Scheme 2015 and the Sullivans Cove Planning Scheme 1997.

The project brief for the preparation of the Precincts Plan was endorsed by Council on 8 July 2019. That Project will examine the social, environmental and economic impacts of height limits and also examine appropriate built form outcomes taking into account the Central Hobart Building Height Standards Review (L Woolley 2018). Further information in relation to that Project can be viewed on the CoH Website.

At its meeting on 19 August 2019, the Council considered the results of the elector poll in relation to building heights in Hobart, conducted by the Tasmanian Electoral Commission, and again decided not to initiate the planning scheme amendments provided in Attachment B to item 8.2.
