THE Launceston City Council is next week expected to receive a 15-month planning and construction plan for The Silos development.
Council general manager Robert Dobrzynski convened a meeting with representatives from the state government, Launceston Flood Authority and the council to plan out the project with developer Errol Stewart and his planning team.
Mr Dobrzynski said various government agencies needed to be drawn into the project's early stages as it dealt with flood levees, Crown land and planning scheme amendments, before the development application was lodged to allow for construction.
``My objective in convening that meeting was to prepare an implementation plan that sequentially went through the various steps that need to be addressed to make the project a reality and to make sure we are not running up against walls that we haven't foreseen, which could delay the project,'' he said.
Mr Stewart will return to the council next week with a plan that will detail the project until December next year.
He said he planned to see scaffolding on the silos this year to clean the Kings Wharf structure, and possible minor demolition work while the Tasmanian Planning Commission reviewed an application for zonal changes to the site.
Mr Stewart said he would soon meet the Launceston Flood Authority, who would design a new flood levee to surround the proposed hotel, which is predicted to take six months to build.
