On 19 August 2019, the Northern Midlands Council considered Traders In Purple’s request to amend the Northern Tasmania Regional Land Use Strategy, 2018.
This process occurred following on from the Community Consultation held in mid-2018 and lodgement of a submission requesting that Northern Midlands Council initiate an amendment to the Northern Tasmania Regional Land Use Strategy. It also followed on from Council’s request for additional information earlier this year.
At the meeting, Council voted that:
Council write to the Northern Region Councils seeking their view on the request to amend the Northern Tasmania Regional Land Use Strategy by including the land at 98 Ridgeside Lane, 211 Logan Road and CT 101154/1 Logan Road, Evandale within the ‘urban growth area’ classification under the Strategy.
The consultation process with regional Council’s is expected to take a number of months to complete and our aims for this project from a regional perspective, is to include the site as a ‘Growth Area’ to:
Align with Tasmania’s regional plan to expand and grow economic activity in Tasmania,
Improve educational attainment and employment skills,
Address the needs of Tasmania’s changing demographic profile,
Align with the Tasmania’s Department of State Growth Population Growth Strategy,
Encourage job creation and workforce development,
Encourage Interstate migration and liveability.
