Launceston Retail Audit and Activity Centres Strategy (2011)
Launceston City Council commissioned Renaissance Planning to provide an evidence based strategy to guide retail-commercial policy over the next 25 years and beyond. The study provides an overview of the greater urban area for the first time. Key elements of the Strategy include:
- detailed understanding of Launceston's contribution to the regional economy and the significance of tourism for retailing and employment;
- policies to maintain and consolidate the leading regional role of the Launceston CBD and the wider Launceston Central Area;
- recommended consolidation of the district centres of Kings Meadows and Mowbray;
- policies to consolidate the city's bulky goods precincts and to maintain their close relationship with the CBD;
- recommended consolidation of the neighbourhood centres of Launceston and the greater urban area;
- recommended long term development of a high access corridor extending from Kings Meadows to the CBD and north to Mowbray and the University of Tasmania campus.
