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.

The community's input is guiding the development of the draft Transport Strategy to address the most pressing issues within the control of the City of Hobart. During 2016 and 2017 the City has released four consultation modules and asked the community to contribute issues, concerns and ideas. All engagement modules have now closed and a summary of the community engagement is available here.

A draft strategy is now being developed, however with the Hobart City Vision Project currently underway, it is envisaged that the draft Transport Strategy will be released for community consultation following the adoption of the new Vision for the City in 2018.

  • The June 2017 issue of 'City News' said that the Background Paper for Module 4 (Local area traffic issues) was available and that comments had to be made before the end of July 2017. I can't see the background paper or anywhere that comments can be made. Many thanks, Sue Headley.

    Hi Sue, 

    Our apologies, the survey and background paper have been re-checked and are now currently available.  Thank-you for bringing this to our attention.  Please let us know if there are any more issues. 

    Kind regards,

    vonkas asked about 1 year ago

    The survey for Module 1- Freight, Port and Air is now complete, however there is still opportunity to get involved in this engagement.

    We have recently uploaded the background paper for Module 2 - Private Transport.  This can be found in the Related Documents section of the Your Say page.

    The survey relating to Module 2 will be open for submissions in the next couple of weeks and will run until late March 2017, so there is plenty of time for you to have your say.
