Consultation for this project has concluded.

Will it be somewhere you want to go? Will it be somewhere everyone wants to go?

You can help shape its future!

The Reimagining the Cataract Gorge Project is aimed at developing a vision for 632 hectares of our City - the Cataract Gorge Reserve and the Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area (TNRA). The vision will guide and inform us on how to move forward into the future. It is a joint project of the City of Launceston, the Tasmanian Government and Tourism North Tasmania.

In November last year the City of Launceston invited representatives of the study area's communities of interest to a workshop at Aurora Stadium to begin planning the project's broader community engagement process. This workshop identified eight themes to build the future around. From the workshop, a draft paper outlining the Vision, Guiding Principles, Themes & Possible Responses has been developed and is available for you to read.

You can also read about the consultation to date - In our Document Library you will see there are three updates.

Have Your Say Today!

You will need to be registered to complete the survey. We encourage you to do this as it is a great opportunity for you to have your say and help us shape the future of the Caratact Gorge Reserve and TNRA.

The consultation closes on 6 July 2015.

    Project Update: 30 October 2015

    Earlier this year the Launceston community was invited to help create a vision for the Cataract Gorge and the Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area. A draft paper outlining the Vision, Guiding Principles, Themes & Possible Responses was presented for comment and over 400 people contributed to shaping the draft which was then central to the development of a Green Paper.

    The Green Paper was then presented to the community along with an invitation to comment. These comments were then central to the development of a White Paper.

    Council at its meeting on 26 October 2015 resolved to release the White Paper to the community for a four week exhibition period; and to include in the White Paper prior to circulation, that any commercial development within or adjacent to the City of Launceston Cataract Gorge (but utilising the Gorge's vista) is supported provided it is sympathetic to the vision and values of the Cataract Gorge. Such decisions will be determined by the Council following consideration of comments following a public exhibition of each specific project. This process precedes the Development Application process.

    The community is invited to read the White Paper. It is available for viewing until Friday 27 November 2015.

    It is available HERE along with the Survey Results Summary of the Green Paper. Both papers are also available at the City of Launceston's Customer Service Centre, Town Hall, St John Street.

    The White Paper will be presented to the Council for adoption at its meeting in December 2015.
