North and North East Tasmania Projects

The projects of NTD are based around strategic planning, regional land-use planning, regional transport and infrastructure planning, and local government resource sharing initiatives. These projects allow us to work within the community and the region to develop and grow the economy of the north and north east of Tasmania. The projects identified are developed by NTD to reflect the best outcomes for the community and the region as a whole.

One project currently being spearheaded by NTD is the Northern Regional Futures Project.  This project endorsed by the Launceston Chamber of Commerce and supported in principle by Member Councils, will establish a shared direction to advance the prospects of the north and north east of Tasmania.

Other projects include the Asia Engagement Strategy, Industrial Precinct Technical Guides, the Industrial Land Study, the North East Mountain Bike Project, and the Statewide Planning Reforms.  For further details on these projects go to the Northern Tasmania Projects page
