Council is developing a Masterplan for Glenorchy's Civic Heart and we want your views!

For the past few months, Council has been working with our neighbours to develop a draft Masterplan for Glenorchy's Civic Heart. The Masterplan is focused on the central precinct between Main Road, Barry Street and Terry Street, Glenorchy.

We are now seeking your input on the Draft CityScape Civic Heart Masterplan. You can have your say by taking the survey, sending an email to the address below, or in person at the Council Chambers in Glenorchy.

Background

The CityScape Civic Heart Masterplan sets out a long-term vision for the centre of Glenorchy

The vision is for a modern, efficient, fully accessible precinct that will house Council Chambers, the Library, commercial tenancies, and other government services.

The vision also includes redesigning the open public spaces, to provide a Civic Heart for all of Glenorchy to enjoy.

We want to see a place where our City’s civic, commercial and community services can thrive together. This central sub-precinct will be an inviting and accessible space that reflects our City’s diversity and community spirit.

Our City Heart will provide valuable community services and be bustling with life from morning until night. It will attract and retain business, visitors and workers from within our community and beyond.

Buildings will link to safe and inviting outdoor spaces. The design and development of the Civic Heart will set a high standard for urban design, accessibility and community space for both Glenorchy and wider Tasmania.

Guiding Principles of the CityScape Masterplan

The Draft Masterplan includes the following overarching guiding principles:

  1. Supporting and generating a strong economy
  2. Fostering a vibrant and activated place
  3. Encouraging safe movement and transport access
  4. Embedding sustainability into the precinct
  5. Championing accessibility
  6. Greening the civic heart
  7. Celebrating the community
  8. Designing a distinctive public realm

This project is part of Future Glenorchy and the Economic Recovery Program, aimed at growing Glenorchy and improving liveability of the City.

Contributions to this consultation are closed for evaluation and review. The project team will report back on key outcomes.
