Planning process

Planning process - Project of State Significance (PoSS)

On 16 October 2023, the proposal for a multi-purpose stadium at Macquarie Point was declared a Project of State Significance and will be assessed by the Tasmanian Planning Commission.

The Tasmanian Planning Commission released draft guidelines that are currently available online, alongside feedback received in response.

You can find a copy of the draft guidelines, the public feedback and a copy of our submission.

The Commission has now released the final guidelines, which are available here.

The Commission wrote to the Corporation on 22 February 2024 outlining the assessment process.
