Welcome to the second iteration of Mapping Important Places for north west Tasmania.

Key points:

  • We are seeking your feedback on the suitability of the proposed REZ. This is the second step to seek public feedback on host locations before a REZ is declared.
  • If declared, there will be further opportunities for feedback when proponents begin studying the area and commence formal approvals processes for renewable energy infrastructure.
  • Our first Mapping Important Places initiative helped us identify many culturally and environmentally important places throughout the north west. Your input directly fed into the process that identified the candidate area.
  • We’d now like to further refine this by focusing only on this area to ensure we haven’t missed any places important to you.
  • By participating, you can pinpoint areas of importance on the interactive map below. You will also be asked to take part in a survey.
  • REZ in Tasmania will be co-designed with the public and will coexist sustainably with existing environment and culture, while benefitting communities.

To participate, zoom into a location within or near the proposed REZ and drop a pin on the map to identify places of cultural or environmental importance that will need to be sensitively managed, and places you deem suitable for renewable energy development.

When choosing a location, you will be prompted to take part in a survey that asks more detailed questions about the proposed REZ. You do not have to take part in the survey.
