Greater Hobart Business Survey

As a valued business in the City of Glenorchy, Council invites you to take part in this survey so we can better understand your needs and opportunities in our City.

Economic growth in the City of Glenorchy is the top priority of our community and Council, and this year Council is working to develop an Economic Development Strategy.

This Strategy will tell the world what we do best, where we are growing and where we are going.

To inform the Strategy, we must first understand our economic and business environment. As a business person in our area, your input is an essential part in understanding the City's economic profile. You can help us by completing this independent business survey. The results will provide consistent baseline data for the region and the local government area, identifying economic opportunities to build into Council plans.

The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete and will help to formulate the economic strategy for the next five years.

Glenorchy CBD Project - Public Art Project 

Esteemed Tasmanian artist, Matt Calvert, has been named the winner of a contract to create public art for the people of Glenorchy to enjoy in the CBD.

The art has been commissioned as part of the $5.795 million Glenorchy CBD Revitalisation Project, which aims to make the area more usable for pedestrians by minimising the impact of vehicles and providing street art, feature lighting and wide pavements.

A widely collected Australian-based sculptor who works primarily with toughened glass, aluminium and Corten steel, Calvert is known for incorporating low maintenance recycled materials in his works, which bode well in a variety of light and weather.

This environmentally friendly approach to public art is in line with Council's vision to create a clean, safe, and vibrant city that makes all residents and community members proud.

Key to Matt's preparation in undertaking the works is community consultation, which has so far included workshops and presentations with local schools, interviews with members of the migrant community and visits to Karadi and Leprena. This week, Matt is consulting with locals through 'stop and chat' sessions in and around the CBD and on Metro buses.

The Glenorchy City Council Community Plan 2015 - 2040 describes a vision for the City as a city of arts. The Plan identifies arts and culture as one of the community's most important priorities for the future. 

If you have any questions about the public art component of the CBD Revitalisation Project or would like to get in touch with Matt, please contact Council on (03) 6216 6800.
