$15 million has been allocated to the development of a purpose built community hub, while $10 million will go towards the Albert Hall renewal project.
“Revitalising Launceston’s northern suburbs is a key priority of the City Deal, and these projects will deliver new and upgraded sporting and recreation facilities that will bring the community together,” Mr. Hodgman said.
“Tasmanian also welcomes the commitment of the Liberal Party to extend the Launceston City Deal partnership between all levels of government to 10 years.”
Mr. Hodgman said the Launceston City Deal would unlock a new wave of investment and job creation.
“Tasmania is the only state in the nation to have signed two City Deals,” Mr. Hodgman said.
“Combined with the Devonport Living Cities Project it amounts to a forward investment schedule approaching $2 billion, to grow jobs and transform our cities right across the state.”
