Community invited to provide feedback

Burnie City Council has released two key planning documents in their Final Draft Stage, and is inviting public comment.

The Burnie Town Centre Master Plan and the Settlement and Investment Strategy Review are now on public display and available for comment until 24 February 2017.

Burnie City Council Mayor Anita Dow said, “The Burnie Town Centre Master Plan and the Settlement and Investment Strategy Review will both play a very important role in future planning for the City of Burnie.”

“A lot of work and community consultation has already been undertaken to develop these plans and Council is now inviting the community to consider these documents and to provide feedback.”

“The purpose of the Burnie Town Centre Master Plan is to deliver on the Making Burnie 2030 objective to create an attractive place to live, work and play. The Master Plan focuses on creating precincts within the CBD, delivering connectedness across the CDB and improving the liveability for Burnie through creating a vibrant CBD. This is not a short term plan, rather it is a road map to ensure a coordinated approach to development that will produce great outcomes for the whole community.”

“The Settlement and Investment Strategy Review focuses on the long term impacts of economic, demographic and housing challenges, and settlement patterns; and considers future plans for industrial activity, retail and commercial activity, tourism and hospitality, transport infrastructure and community infrastructure.”

Copies of these plans can be downloaded from Council’s website,, or hard copies can be collected from Council’s City Offices at 80 Wilson Street, Burnie. The plans will also be on display at the Council’s City Offices and Burnie LINC.

Feedback can be completed online at, emailed to, mailed to The General Manager, Burnie City Council, PO Box 973, Burnie TAS 7320, or dropped into Council’s City Offices.
