Draft Community Commitments

The engagement period for this project has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback on this project. We are currently collating the engagement results and will report back here soon.


The City of Hobart's mission is to work together to make Hobart a better place for the community – that is, A City for All. As part of this, Council has recognised systemic exclusion, discrimination and inequity in the city and understands that this demands systemic and structural solutions.

In October 2020, Council endorsed a Social Inclusion Policy, outlining our legal and social responsibilities and informs the recently developed Hobart: A City for All - Community Inclusion and Equity Framework endorsed by Council in May 2021.

As well as highlighting eight focus areas and guiding principles, the Framework identifies the need for detailed action plans to assist the City in building an equitable and inclusive community.

These action plans are our organisational commitments. The first to be completed was the Aboriginal Commitment and Action Plan, which has already been endorsed by Council. A further six community commitments have now been prepared:

  • Multicultural Commitment
  • LGBTQI+ Commitment
  • Equal Access Commitment
  • Positive Ageing Commitment
  • Youth Commitment
  • Community Safety Commitment.

The final action plan, Affordable Housing and Homelessness Commitment is still under development.

The City is now seeking community feedback on six of the draft commitments. Feedback gathered during this engagement period will be used to consider any changes or amendments to the documents before presenting the final documents to Council in June 2021.
