Northern Tasmania Projects

The Northern Tasmania 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 Northern Tasmania.

As projects are identified, NTD develops these projects to reflect the best outcomes for the community and the northern region. 

One project currently being spearheaded by NTD is the Northern Tasmania Regional Futures Plan.  This project will establish a shared direction to advance the prospects for the region as defined as the '63' telephone district encompassing the Council areas of Northern Tasmania. Full details of this specific project are located on the Northern Tasmania Regional Futures Plan page
