There are two declared areas within the municipality of Glenorchy with a ‘high landslip hazard’ banding that Council monitors, the Rosetta Landslip and the Casuarina Landslip. Find more information on hazard bands here.
As part of Council’s management responsibilities, we monitor the conditions in these two areas and produce a quarterly report. Council is also part of the Landslip Management Working Group which includes Glenorchy City Council, Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service – Property Services, TasWater and Mineral Resources Tasmania.
What is a landslide hazard?
A landslide hazard is a source of potential harm resulting from the downslope movement of a mass of rock, debris, or earth. Landslides include falls, topples, slides, flows, and spreads.
