As part of its Land Strategy, Huon Valley Council is lodging planning applications for six subdivisions across multiple towns to establish formed roads from their bordering land lots and adjust boundaries.
By formalising road lots and land boundaries, the subdivisions will allow for future development possibilities and the creation of public open space.
Specific details for each site can be found online in the Huon Valley Council Land Strategy.

Please note these are not land sales, and this announcement does not signal (or exclude) future development or disposal of land. Future development opportunities will be considered after Council completes its development of policy and procedure regarding the sale and disposal of land.
The subdivisions are in line with our Land Strategy and will ensure we are maximising use of land, obtaining a return on capital investment, and providing development opportunities and returns to the community.
Planning notification for the subdivisions will be released to the adjoining land owners and general public in the coming months. As the subdivisions are currently under application, no correspondence sent to Council will be counted as a submission to the development application. Those who wish to send a submission must wait until the development application is advertised.
