At the outset of the election campaign, the Northern Tasmanian Development Corporation outlined five 'priority projects' it would seek funds for.
The NTDC is a group that represents the wishes of seven Northern councils, including George Town, the municipality which was run by Liberal candidate Bridget Archer.
However, Ms Archer has since stood down from her duties as mayor as the election campaign got underway.
The NTDC and The Examiner have been championing these projects to ensure regional projects receive the same funding as big-picture national policies.
Here is where each party sits in relation to these projects.
Despite needing the least amount of money committed to it, the population strategy outlined by NTDC has yet to secure any concrete promise of cash.
NTDC has been analysing projected employment data, which showed the North was set to lose 5000 workers by 2023, if nothing was done to stem the tide of the impending mass retiring of the workforce.
While both parties have pledged support for this project, both have stopped short of pledging any actual cash, despite the NTDC only asking for $200,000 to support the project.
NTDC appointed Edward Obi as the population attraction coordinator in 2018 to work with stakeholders to maximise the skills and experience of international migrants in the region's workforce.
Bass Liberal candidate Bridget Archer said population growth was "very important" to the economy.
"If elected, I will work closely with the Hodgman Liberal government and other stakeholders such as the NTDC and the Launceston Chamber of Commerce to develop a strategic plan for Launceston and Bass."
Bass incumbent Ross Hart said Labor "fully supported" the population strategy for Northern Tasmania.
"If elected we will work with the NTDC, the Launceston Chamber of Commerce, and others, to progress this strategy through our expanded Launceston City Deal, extended to 2027."
TRANSLINK LAUNCESTON GATEWAY
The Translink Launceston freight gateway project is located near Breadalbane and is home to more than 70 businesses employing a total workforce of more than 1250 people.
NTDC was seeking a federal funding contribution towards the $75.45 million project to help further progress the Launceston Gateway Precinct master plan.
The plan would help to grow and expand the precinct by providing infrastructure such as stormwater and gas reticulation.
There are 58 vacant lots in the precinct, with a further 120 hectares of adjacent primary industry zoned land.
So far, neither major party has committed federal funding for this project in any capacity.
However, Liberal Bass candidate Bridget Archer pledged $1.5 million to assess the feasibility of an eastern bypass, along with $40 million to upgrade the Sideling.
A ring road would help alleviate some of the issues of freight in Launceston's arterial CBD roads and would link up to the gateway in some capacity.
A project that has been several years in the making, FermenTasmania's ambitious project to establish a fermentation centre of excellence in Northern Tasmania has made some giant leaps forward.
The project was slated as one of NTDCs five priority projects, with the organisation seeking a $10 million commitment for the establishment of a "fermented food and beverage factory to boost innovation".
The FermenTasmania factory has been earmarked for a site at Legana and will help to establish Northern Tasmania as the centre for fermentation education and innovation.
It is in collaboration with the University of Tasmania, TasTAFE and other education providers.
In April, Labor pledged $5 million to "help get the project off the ground."
FermenTasmania chief executive Pip Dawson said the factory would reduce market entry barriers for start-ups and existing businesses looking to scale up.
"We are delighted to have received this financial boost as the time to act is now," she said.
The Liberals have not committed funding to this project to date. It's expected the project would cost about $16 million to get established.
BIOENERGY PLANT AT WESTBURY
Meander Valley Council has led detailed investigations over the last three years into a waste to industrial energy facility that would redirect waste streams from meat rendering and other wet organic waste.
The bioenergy plant would be located at the Valley Central Industrial Precinct and could also lead to the establishment of an abattoir in later stages down the track.
NTDC in collaboration with Meander Valley Council was seeking $250,000 in federal funds for the export-related energy hub.
The project would create 80-100 direct design and construction jobs and would lead to 120-140 operational jobs with construction to begin in 2020, if financial support is secured.
Incumbent Lyons member Bryan Mitchell announced his party would commit to the full $250,000 sought by NTDC and the council for the project in May.
"Bioenergy technology is well established in Australia - if this plant gets up, it will have significant benefits for Tasmania; it will create new jobs, boost our state's renewable energy generation capabilities and will benefit our agricultural and forestry industries," he said.
Liberal Senator Richard Colbeck said at the time the Coalition had announced $85 million in other grants for regional Tasmania but the party has stopped short of pledging funds for the project.
HYDROGEN ENERGY PLANT
Bell Bay has been identified as the likely location to set up a hydrogen production facility where over 1000 people could be employed, making use of the deep port with access to high voltage power, water and labour.
Japan and South Korea have developed a shortfall of hydrogen as they attempt to decarbonise their economies, opening up new export opportunities for Australia.
NTDC chairman John Pitt said hydrogen has been earmarked as providing one-quarter of Northern Tasmania's export growth over the next 10 years.
The facility would use renewable energy to electrocute drinking water through a process called electrolysis, splitting it into hydrogen and oxygen. It can be exported as liquid hydrogen, or combined with nitrogen to create ammonia.
Hydrogen is then used to power anything that requires energy, replacing sources such as diesel and coking coal.
Labor has promised $250,000 for a business case into establishing a hydrogen production facility in Northern Tasmania, where it is expected to be among the top three production areas in Australia.
It is part of a $1.14 billion National Hydrogen Plan. The study will be complete by the end of this year, should Labor win the election.
The Coalition has also not confirmed whether it will or won't support the establishment of the facility.
