COUNCIL: The meeting is on Monday in Longford.

The Northern Midlands Council will formulate its positions for the annual general meeting of the Local Government Association of Tasmania at its July meeting. 

The council will consider a number of items that will be on the LGAT meeting agenda, including free camping policy, councillor allowances and whether Tasmanian councils should create a statewide waste management arrangement. 

Other items on the agenda for the council’s meeting include whether to approve a 25-lot subdivision at Perth and if the council should alter the planned play equipment for the Longford Village Green redevelopment.

The proposed subdivision is at 21-43 Clarence Street, Perth and is a partly heritage-listed property, according to council documents.

It copped criticism from some in the community for not fitting the overall feel and aesthetic amenity of Perth.
