There is no definite timeline on when a development application for the University of Tasmania campus at Inveresk will be complete.
A UTAS spokesman said the DA had not yet been submitted, but a DA for West Park in Burnie would be lodged in the near future.
“Much is happening on the Northern Transformation Project as we work to ensure the proposal delivers its enormous promise for the North and North-West,” the spokesman said.
Previously, the university has said the DA for Inveresk would be lodged to the City of Launceston council by the end of the year.
However, the spokesman did not confirm whether that timeline would still be adhered to.
“This is a once in a generation investment in education in the North and North-West of the state. It is vital that we take the time needed to get that investment right,” he said.
The Northern Transformation project is a $260 million project, with new campuses in Burnie and Launceston.
“The University is working closely with our partners in the community and industry to further develop plans for an extended range of courses delivered into a vibrant, magnetic campus at Inveresk.”
In July, architecture firm John Wardle Architects were announced as the principal consultants for both campuses.
JWA will work with a consortium of architects, including Tasmanian firms Room 11, 1+2 Architects and Philp Lighton on the campuses.
