The development at Hobart’s Mac Point has reached a major milestone after achieving approval as a Project of State Significance Order for multi-purpose Stadium.

This means the Tasmanian Planning Commission will undertake an integrated assessment including broad environmental, social and economic considerations of the project.

The public will also have an opportunity to voice their opinions on the plans.

“The multi-purpose stadium at Mac Point will be the centrepiece of this important precinct, unlocking investment and jobs,” said Premier Jeremy Rockliff.

“The approval of this Order will help progress the Mac Point Stadium as a Project of State Significance, to turn dreams into a reality.”

The next step in the Project of State Significance process will be the development of guidelines for the assessment by the Tasmanian Planning Commission over the coming four months.

“Our Government is delivering on our long-term plan to create jobs and opportunity for Tasmanian families and build more connected communities,” the Premier said.
