Supply Projects

Printable Version

This program of tenders has been prepared to reflect Action 3.1 of Tasmania’s Affordable Housing Action Plan 2019-2023 (Action Plan 2).  This program represents the capital projects that the Department of Communities Tasmania intends to facilitate through to 2023 to meet the targets established under Action Plan 2.

The program is indicative only and dates may change due to a number of elements.  Supply targets are also provided as an indication of the likely scale of each project.  Again, these may change depending on a number of factors.

Any significant changes to the program will be published as a revised program on the Communities Tasmania website.

For new social housing projects, the Department has developed a Map of Social Housing Demand to show areas of high demand for social housing in Tasmania.

Capital Project Briefs

During October 2019, young people who reside in supported accommodation facilities were consulted by Housing Tasmania to verify which features of building they preferred and to raise ideas for improving their homes in the future. The purpose of consulting young residents was to inform the design of new supported accommodation facilities to be delivered in Burnie, Hobart, Devonport and Launceston.’

These new projects are described in the program of tenders on this page and are in the pipeline of new assets described in the Affordable Housing Action Plan 2019-23. The findings of the consultation process are outlined in the Consultation Report -
New Youth Supported Accommodation Projects - February 2020.
