Launceston City Deal

From proud past to bright future 

Launceston's City Deal is Tasmania's first City Deal, and the second for Australia.

All three levels of government are working closely with the local communities and businesses to identify what we need to do today to ensure our City succeeds into the future and delivers lasting benefits for Launceston and Northern Tasmania.

Signed in April 2017 by the Commonwealth Government, the Tasmanian Government and the City of Launceston; the Launceston City Deal was initially a drawn up as a five-year plan, (until 2022) and in 2019 received a commitment from all levels of government to extend the initiative to 10 years.

The collaborative 10-year plan will maximise Launceston’s potential by focusing on:

  • Jobs and skills growth
  • Business, industry and population growth
  • A vibrant, liveable city
  • Innovation and industry engagement
  • A healthy Tamar Estuary 

The City of Launceston has an active role as project lead for a number of major commitments and genuine partnerships across the levels of government, private sector and the community to achieve the vision.
