Project Description

Droughty Point Master Plan

JMG were engaged to prepare a submission for the Resource Planning and Development Commission hearings for the then Draft Clarence Planning Scheme.

The submission provided a strategic framework for future development on Droughty Point, which is the largest land bank remaining of Hobart’s Eastern Shore.  Our submission considered options for rezoning a large portion of the Point against the relevant provisions of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act, the relevant State Policies and the Draft Clarence Building Scheme.

The report concluded by recommending a number of alterations to the Draft Clarence Planning Scheme that would assist in creating certainty for both the property owners and the community and that would set the framework for detailed strategic planning to be undertaken for the site and the Droughty Point growth corridor.

Key Issues

Planning controls

Maintaining the flexibility of the planning controls to ensure that future development may follow a site development plan so that the visual, Aboriginal heritage and environmental values of the site may be protected.

Scope of Submission

Our submission included a detailed site description (including the site’s development and planning history), identified the strategic context of the site, provided policy analysis and made specific recommendations.
