  • 2016/17 Budget Consultation - Get involved!

    Budget_2016-17__web_button

    It's budget time at the City of Launceston and we want to hear from you now so that the Aldermen have time to consider your ideas before the 2016/17 budget is finalised.

    Don't miss your chance to tell us your ideas for smaller capital projects (up to an approximate value of $25,000) that you think would be of benefit to the Launceston community.

    It doesn't matter how small - we want to hear from you. Your ideas will then be provided to the Aldermen for consideration at their meeting on Thursday 3 March 2016.

    While these projects are comparatively small compared to the major capital projects the City undertakes, we have found that projects initiated by the community often have a benefit far in excess of their cost.

    So take the time and get involved in your community!

    Tell us your idea/s AND complete the survey and go into the draw to WIN one of two double passes for the Hawthorn vs St Kilda AFl match at Aurora Stadium in the Eastern Terrace on Saturday 16 April at 2.10pm

    The Budget consultation closes on Wednesday 24 February 2016.

  • High Street (Howick to Mary Street) school crossing upgrade - NEW UPDATE

    about 4 years ago

    On 19 December 2013 council officers and representatives from DIER met on site with local property owners, representatives of council's external traffic consultation group, Alderman Armitage and Alderman McKendrick.  The design to increase the width of the central traffic island and create a staggered crossing met with questions and queries from those present.

    These notes are a summary of those questions and queries.  They include council's current (as at April 2014) action for this proposal.

    These notes are a summary of those questions and queries.  They include council's current (as at April 2014) action for this proposal.

    Thank you to everyone who visited this site, commented and completed the survey and polls.  Although community feedback supported improving road safety, the proposal did not meet with general acceptance by either the community or essential community services.  An alternative design has been developed by council in consultation with DIER.  This alternative proposal can be viewed in the library.  We are currently talking with local property owners and residents about this alternative design.


    This consultation has concluded although you can still view comments and read associated documents.

    To increase safety for school children crossing at the 'school crossing' along High Street,  the Launceston City Council proposes to restrict the hours when motorists can turn right from Howick Street into High Street. 

    The no right turn restrictions would be:  between 8.00am and 9.15am and 2.50pm and 3.30pm - school days only - the same time the school crossing patrol officer is at the crossing.

    Have your say on this proposal. Go to the forum page, have a look at the drawing in the library, join in a conversaton with others or, just tell us your thoughts.  What do you think of these plans?
