Northern 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 Northern Tasmania. The projects identified are developed by NTD to reflect the best outcomes for the community and the northern region. 

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 Northern Tasmania.
