Peter Gutwein, Minister for State Growth
The Cable Car (kunanyi/Mount Wellington) Facilitation Act 2017 provides the Minister for State Growth with the authority to grant a proponent access to public land to undertake site investigations for the purposes of preparing a planning application for a cable car project.
Following receipt of a formal request from the company and my subsequent notification to the Hobart City Council, I have granted an Authority permitting access to public land owned by the Council that is located outside of Wellington Park to undertake site investigations for the purposes of preparing a planning application.
I am currently consulting with the Wellington Park Management Trust in relation to access to land that is within Wellington Park and anticipate granting access to that land in the near future.
The Government is supportive of a cable car for kunanyi/Mount Wellington and I look forward to a Development Application being lodged with Council.
