Draft Sustainable Hobart Action Plan

Project Overview


The City of Hobart endorsed the Draft Sustainable Hobart Action Plan 2020-2025: Responding to Climate Change for community engagement on May 25 2020.

The draft Plan describes 42 projects planned for the next 5 years. These have been created in response to the consultation undertaken with the Hobart community for the Community Vision document in 2018 and through the review of the Climate Change Strategy 2013.

The City’s Innovation Division has developed the Draft Sustainable Hobart Action Plan to guide the City’s response to the issues the community is facing from a changing climate in an intelligent, localised and community-focused way. These issues impact on the social, economic and cultural well-being of our residents and fabric of our communities and businesses.

The Draft Plan has been developed in consultation with the community, other parts of council and multiple external stakeholders. It aims to promote and develop the City’s climate action leadership by putting forward a series of practical steps to make Hobart a more sustainable city.

The City of Hobart has compiled the Draft Sustainable Hobart Action Plan. We have also compiled a fact sheet and have set up a FAQ section to answer some common questions. Please visit our Important Links section to read about the related City of Hobart strategies and plans as well as relevant climate change and sustainability documents.

In recognising that community involvement is critical to building a sustainable future, the City is now seeking community and stakeholder feedback on the Draft Plan. Feedback gathered during this phase of engagement will seek to determine the community’s level of support for the Draft Plan and will inform the final Plan.

  • Sustainability is the term for all things that decrease our dependence on non-renewable energy and increase the idea of living within the means of our current environment without damaging it for the future. Sustainable initiatives should address the issues of ecological robustness, social equity and economic viability.
