Old Beach zoning review update

by Brighton Council

Brighton Council recently endorsed the findings of the Old Beach Zoning Review Project for community con­sultation. Last year, Council engaged ERA Planning Con­sultants to check whether two precincts in Old Beach can accommodate further residential growth, given the high demand. The ERA analysis included communi­ty engagement, site analysis and a traffic assessment.

Community engagement occurred mid-2022, with 72 responses from 104 properties in the precincts. The site analysis consid­ered the current planning controls, details of the site and surrounds, land con­straints and values, and the transport network in and around Old Beach. The traffic assessment analysed the capacity of the East Derwent Highway and key intersections to accommo­date increased traffic.

The consultants determined that both precincts gen­erally have the necessary conditions to accommodate future residential growth, subject to infrastructure upgrades, master planning and rezoning applications being approved by Council and the Tasmanian Plan­ning Commission.

Community consultation for the project will run for a period of four weeks, from 23 January – 24 February. Members of the community are invited to review the documents and make written submissions. All submissions received during this period will be considered by Council in making their final decision as to whether to endorse the report’s recommendations.

For further information, please contact Brian White on (03) 6268 7070. The documents can be viewed at www.brighton.tas.gov.au/community/have-your-say.
