Project Overview


Hobart is growing. The purpose of the Central Hobart Precincts Plan is to guide future growth in a way that will strengthen what’s great about Hobart and to build on its position as a vibrant, liveable and connected city.

The Central Hobart Precincts Plan study area covers 64 blocks bounded by Davey Street to the South, Burnett Street to the north, the Brooker Highway in the east and Molle and Harrington Streets to the west.

The Central Hobart Precincts Plan will:

  • establish a shared vision and framework for the future growth of Central Hobart and identify a set of actions to deliver it;

  • identify a suite of precincts across the study area and outline a vision for each of them ensuring the ongoing viability of Central Hobart as Tasmania’s key administrative and commercial activity centre;

  • identify opportunities for increased residential densities and infrastructure as well as commercial and community services to support it;

  • identify the preferred urban form and scale of development for precincts based on a range of urban design, heritage, economic and social considerations.

How can you find out more information about the project


The City of Hobart has compiled a Baseline Report and commissioned and an Economic, Demographic and Employment Study on the study area. These two documents detail current conditions, issues and opportunities and include projections for future growth in the study area.

The City is now seeking feedback from the community to identify key issues and opportunities for the Central Hobart study area. Feedback from this stage of engagement will inform a Discussion Paper which will be the focus of the next phase of community engagement.
