North Hobart Precinct Place Vision, Access and Parking Plan
In February 2020 we invited North Hobart residents, traders and visitors to share their thoughts on the future of the Elizabeth Street, North Hobart retail and restaurant strip. This was in response to the growing popularity of the area, and the increased pressure on parking, traffic and general amenity.
We received more than 735 responses from people sharing their ideas and opinions through surveys and face-to-face workshops facilitated by place making and transport consultants Village Well and MRCagney. These contributions have helped the consultants shape the following reports:
- The North Hobart Retail and Entertainment Precinct Engagement Report summarises the outcomes of this engagement work.
- The North Hobart Place Vision Framework and Access and Parking Plan offers an aspirational vision for North Hobart and a series of recommendations from the consultants to guide future place making, amenity, transport and parking improvements in the precinct.
- Recommendations specific to the future use of Condell Place have also been prepared to assist in working towards addressing the area’s parking issues.
You can download and view these reports on Your Say Hobart.
February - March 2021 engagement
In considering the Village Well and MRCagney reports, the Hobart City Council at its meeting of Monday 7 December 2020, approved a series of questions to seek feedback on a number of shorter (quick wins) and longer term proposals flowing on from the consultant’s recommendations.
The City invited North Hobart local residents, traders, property owners, visitors and customers to provide feedback on these reports for an eight week period during February and March 2021. The feedback will help inform the Council's future decisions on the precinct.
