Full steam ahead for Mac Point

4 June 2019

The Macquarie Point development opportunity has reached an important milestone with the passing of Planning Scheme amendments by the Hobart City Council.

I welcome Council’s support in this critical step forward for Mac Point and future developments on the site.

The Government and Macquarie Point Development Corporation are getting on with making Mac Point’s future come to life. The Government has now transferred Crown land to the Corporation, another major milestone and step towards an exciting future for Mac Point.

Work within Mac Point has been continuing, with the remediation of the first of six land parcels being completed – the remaining five are due to be completed within the next 18 months.

The Government is delivering on a plan for Mac Point which allows for a range of uses, which will ensure this incredible urban renewal project delivers a vibrant cultural hub with 24/7 life on the site, not just during events.
