25A Osborne Esplanade, Kingston Beach

Council discussed the options available to the Kingston Beach Surf Lifesaving Club during the 26 June Council meeting. The recently refused development proposal for 25a Osborne Esplanade will no longer be pursued and the Surf Club is now looking at other options. Council staff are having further discussions with the Club’s executive in order to assist in finding the right solutions for the Club and its members.

Council is committed to improving the current public toilet and changeroom facilities at Kingston Beach to support both the local community and visitors to the area and will be investigating how the site at 25a Osborne Esplanade can be best used for the future.

Australia Day

Council received a request from Hobart City Council regarding Australia Day and resolved to support:

  1. Changing the date of Australia Day; and
  2. Local Government Association of Tasmania lobbying the Federal Government for changing the date of Australia Day.

Annual Plan

The 2017-18 Annual Plan was adopted by Council at the meeting. The Plan includes the strategic actions, budget estimates and capital works program, as well as describing Council’s activities for the year. The Plan is now available on Council’s Publications and Reports page.

Petition for Roslyn Avenue

Traffic management along Rosyln Avenue was discussed by Council following a petition from concerned residents. It was determined that Council officers will investigate traffic calming options, including consultation with affected residents. Officers will assess traffic volumes and speeds to ascertain appropriate measures to improve traffic flow and address safety concerns.

The minutes and audio from the Council meeting will be published on the Council Meetings webpage.

The next Council Meeting will be held at 5.30pm on Monday 10 July.
