Mount Nelson and Sandy Bay Neighbourhood Plan

The City of Hobart is preparing the Mount Nelson and Sandy Bay Neighbourhood (Structure) Plan.

The Neighbourhood Plan will explore how population growth over the next 20 years could be accommodated through:

  • Identifying opportunities for new housing development including infill, medium density and mixed-use development
  • Explore potential redevelopment of commercial and retail areas

In particular, the Neighbourhood Plan will:

  • Respond to climate change risks
  • Consider improvements to sustainable transport options
  • Identify important environmental areas to be protected
  • Explore improvements to public open space

A Discussion Paper has been prepared to explore the future of Mount Nelson and Sandy Bay.

It is the first stage of the project and will inform the development of the Neighbourhood Plan.
