North Hobart Place Vision and Access & Parking Plan

The engagement period for this project has now closed. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey on the North Hobart Place Vision and Access & Parking Plan. We are currently collating the engagement responses and will report back here soon.

Background

In February 2020 we invited North Hobart residents, traders and visitors to share their thoughts on the future of the Elizabeth Street, North Hobart retail and restaurant strip. This was in response to the growing popularity of the area, and the increased pressure on parking, traffic and general amenity.

We received more than 735 responses from people sharing their ideas and opinions through surveys and face-to-face workshops facilitated by place making and transport consultants Village Well and MRCagney. These contributions have helped the consultants shape the following reports:

In considering the Village Well and MRCagney reports, the Hobart City Council at its meeting of Monday 7 December 2020, approved a series of questions that seek feedback on a number of shorter (quick wins) and longer term proposals flowing on from the consultant’s recommendations.

MRCagney Reporting Error - 5 March 2021

On 5 March 2021 consultants MRCagney acknowledged that two reports prepared for the City of Hobart include a minor numerical drafting error relating to the quoted number of on-street parking spaces on Elizabeth Street used in conjunction with commercial floor area estimations to compare the existing rate of parking provision in North Hobart with current planning scheme requirements. The two reports affected are:

1. North Hobart Retail and Entertainment Precinct, Part B – Access and Parking Plan (Revision C - 29 April 2020)

2. North Hobart Retail and Entertainment Precinct, Condell Place Recommendations (Revision C - 29 April 2020)

MRCagney advise that the error impacts the analysis of the estimated rate of parking supply for businesses on Elizabeth Street between Federal Street and Tasma Street only.

The error does not impact reporting of the existing supply or utilisation of parking throughout the entire study area.

MRCagney also advise that the error identified does not have a material impact on the conclusions and recommendations previously provided by MRCagney.

MRCagney have reviewed both reports in full, and have issued revised reports to the City of Hobart to correct these minor errors. The amended documents can be found in the document library and are also linked below:
