Council welcomes Labor's UTAS funding annoucement

Burnie City Council Mayor Anita Dow has welcomed news that Labor will fund $150 million towards the UTAS development project, should they win the Federal Election.

“It is pleasing to learn that the Labor Party is fully supportive of the $150m UTAS redevelopment project and Council welcomes their election commitment.”

"UTAS plays such a pivotal role in education in our region, and the West Park development will enable more people in our community, and communities beyond, to access further education and courses that align with the needs of the community.”
