Draft Glenorchy Mountain Bike Masterplan - OPEN

At the Council meeting on 29 June 2020, Council approved the draft version of the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Masterplan for public release.

The Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park is located near Tolosa Park in the foothills of Mt Welllington . Council has been working with expert bike park consultants, Dirt Art, to develop a world class vision for this site. The draft Masterplan recommends the creation of over 25kms of trails catering for both beginners and families and top level competition. Council has consulted extensively with key stakeholders including local biking groups, clubs and enthusiasts, to define a clear vision for this area.

Public consultation is now open from Thursday 27 July 2020 to 5pm 14 August 2020.

Your Story - Social Recovery Project *ONGOING*

Glenorchy City Council would like to hear how the COVID 19 pandemic has affected you. 

Are you a resident of the Glenorchy Municipality, or a regular or casual visitor? Do you own a business here?  Do you work, study, or care for someone in Glenorchy? Are you part of a local community group or a local service provider? We want to hear your COVID-19 stories.

Please take a few minutes to answer some questions and help us understand the challenges that you face because of COVID-19.  We’d also like to know about any good things that have happened since the pandemic. Your feedback will help Council to understand the strengths, issues and challenges facing our Glenorchy community. This will help us explore local recovery programs that will help us support each other and work together to build an even stronger community.

Investigation of Potential Disposal (Long Term Lease) of KGV Football (Soccer) Facility - 16 and 18 Grove Road, Glenorchy - CLOSED

Glenorchy City Council is seeking feedback from the community around the potential disposal (by long-term lease) of Council owned land at both 16 and 18 Grove Road, Glenorchy. The land in question is the KGV Soccer facility, and is the area shown in red, below. The land is currently leased to Football Tasmania. As part of the proposed redevelopment of the site, Council is currently considering entering into a long term lease (also known as a Disposal) with Football Tasmania and Glenorchy Knights Football Club.

You are invited to provide feedback between 13 July and 3 August 2020 on whether Council should consider the long-term lease of this land.  This consultation is now closed.

For more information contact Property Sales and Administration Officer, Jasmine Budd, on (03) 6216 6800 or email

Once the community consultation process has been completed, a report will be provided back to Council summarising the results.  Council will review the feedback and consider whether to commence the formal investigation process for disposing of public land which is set out in section 178 of the Local Government Act 1993.  This process requires further public notification and consultation, meaning that there will be further opportunities to have your say. 

For more information about this process, please consult our Public Land Disposals FAQs (PDF Document)


Glenorchy Playspaces Stage 2: Draft Designs


Earlier this year, we invited you to give us feedback on the draft designs for our new Playspaces at Giblins Reserve and Montrose Bay Foreshore.  During the consultation period some technical aspects came to light that need further work. This is a necessary part of creating custom designs that reflect our community’s ideas for play, that need to integrate with other specialist areas such as the skate park, and that also work well on site.

You can view answers to some of the most frequently asked questions raised during the recent Glenorchy Playspaces engagement (Stage 2) by visiting the project page. These answers are based on the information available at this time. Things may change slightly during construction.

Other questions included ones about the different play elements and other amenities. These are currently being considered by the designers and will help inform the final designs.

The final design will be considered by Aldermen at the Council meeting in September 2020. Once the design is approved, Development Applications will be submitted and after that the procurement process can begin. We hope construction will start in early 2021, with the projects due to be completed in late 2021 or early 2022

Paths, Tracks and Trails - *ONGOING*

The Paths, Tracks and Trails survey conducted in September 2019 was designed to seek feedback from the community on paths, tracks and trails  with a goal of connecting our community and keeping us safe healthy, active and inclusive.

The formal survey has closed and the report is now on our Community Engagement Outcomes page. 

However due to the great feedback the project team have decided to keep the interactive platform open so the community can continue to leave comments and feedback about our Paths, Tracks and Trails and this will be assessed as an ongoing project that will help us decide how we prioritise our Capital Works plans in the future.
