Development of a Transport Strategy for the City of Hobart


The City of Hobart is preparing a Transport Strategy that will enable the City to identify and plan for future transport demands to 2030 and beyond. The strategy will support growth in our population, our economy and improve social and environmental outcomes for the City.

We want the community's help to identify the most important issues that the Transport Strategy will need to tackle.

In considering how to progress the development of a new Transport Strategy, the Council has decided to approach the task using a series of modules which will be worked on separately. The outcomes of each will then be integrated as part of the final Transport Strategy. Whilst all the modules are inter-related some separation will assist in ensuring all relevant issues are captured – not just congestion. The four modules selected are detailed below.

The consultation modules will be progressively released during 2016 and 2017. Specific opportunities will be available for the community to contribute issues, concerns and ideas. The City of Hobart has engaged an independent consultant, Inspiring Place to conduct the engagement and document the feedback received.

Not all transport issues and problems are within the control of the City of Hobart. As such the consultation will explain roles and responsibilities of the various bodies involved, including the state government and neighbouring councils.

The community's input will then guide the development of the draft Transport Strategy to address the most pressing issues within the control of the City of Hobart. The community will then have the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft strategy later in 2017.

The engagement period for the Public Transport Module is now closed. The results of this consultation are available below.

The final consultation paper and associated survey on Local Area Traffic Management is available now.
