Foundations in place for City Deal

The Hodgman Liberal Government is committed to growing the economy, creating jobs and cementing Tasmania’s place as one of the world’s must-see destinations.

The Hodgman Liberal Government remains fully committed to a Hobart City Deal.

Today’s constructive meeting provided an opportunity for all three levels of government to come together to review the work that has been undertaken to date and continue work on the development of a City Deal for Hobart.

The Committee Members committed to:

  • further engage, work with, and brief, partner councils.
  • continue to work towards finalisation of the Hobart City Deal by the end of the year.
  • continue to focus on the five key focus areas as a framework.

City Deals provide the ideal framework to deliver transformative outcomes for cities, which has been seen in northern Tasmania with the signing of the Launceston City Deal in April 2017.

A key outcome of the Hobart City Deal will be a shared vision for the Greater Hobart area.

This is an important deal for Hobart, and Tasmania more widely.
