THIS CONSULTATION HAS CONCLUDED

For a copy of the community consultation report, and a copy of Paul Davies' recommendation report, please follow the links in the DOCUMENT LIBRARY of this project page.


Feedback is invited from the public on building heights in Launceston, to help guide the scale of future development in the city and to provide certainty to developers.

The City of Launceston has overseen the preparation of the Launceston CBD Building Height and Massing Study, a document which provides draft proposals on how height and setback controls may be developed in Launceston in the future.

The objective of the draft report is to protect the historic character of Launceston, and to manage the potential increase in demand for development in the city with buildings that may seek greater height and scale.

Proposed limits have been suggested for maximum height, precinct height and street-front height for four defined city precincts:

● Precinct A: The north-south corridor on the western edge of the city, aligned around the major one-way access roads

● Precinct B: River-front area

● Precinct C: City Centre area

● Precinct D: The southern fringe of the city

The draft report provides advice on how height and setback controls might be developed in the future, while also protecting the historic character of Launceston.

Any project proposed in excess of the recommended height limits would require a public planning scheme amendment process.
