Further progress for a $50 million redevelopment project in one capital city has been announced.
The 8.4 hectare site of the Hobart railyards has been called a ‘once-in-a-generation opportunity’ by minister for economic development, David O’Byrne, and has recently seen the formation of a new committee to oversee the project.
The new Macquarie Point Development Project Steering Committee will ring a mixture of infrastructure planning, development, policy and legislation, urban design and corporate governance expertise.
"Today's appointments give Tasmanians - including stakeholders - a direct and convenient opportunity to have a say about what this site should offer and look like in coming years," Mr O’Byrne said.
Part of the committee’s responsibility will be to seek out public consultation from Tasmanians in the months ahead.
