Community consultation

The Corporation has been pro-actively engaging with more than 300 key stakeholders to provide the opportunity to discuss and have input into Mac Point and the vision for the site. This consultation is vital to enhancing community ownership and commitment to the development.

The Corporation has worked closely with TasWater, TasRail and TasPorts as adjacent landowners to ensure support for the reset vision and transparency as the development progresses. The Wastewater Treatment Plant Working Group, which includes key members of the Corporation and TasWater, meets regularly to discuss future options for the plant.

The Mac Point/Hobart City Council working group with the GM, CEO and key staff members of each organisation meets every six weeks to discuss planning, development applications and other matters arising.

The Corporation continues to work closely with surrounding businesses and residents holding bi-monthly tenant and neighbour meetings to share information about upcoming events and activities, works on site and provide a platform for general discussion about neighbourhood issues.

The Corporation has also engaged in a number of presentations, meetings, events and functions to ensure a wide understanding of the site’s development opportunities.

A fundamentally important element of the consultation process has been building a respectful, inclusive and equitable relationship with Tasmania’s Aboriginal community and discussions around the Truth and Reconciliation Art Park. The Corporation has travelled across the state to consult with the Aboriginal community, groups, individuals and Elders.

The Corporation recognises the importance of community ownership and pride in Mac Point and that one of the best catalysts for that connection is through place based activities and opening the space to the public to experience in a variety of ways. Therefore, during development, the Corporation is encouraging all Tasmanians to enjoy the site through a range of activation and interim uses.
