An extra 40 car spaces are being proposed for TasTAFE's Alanvale campus as the education provider moves forward with its expansion.
A development application for the car park has been submitted for public comment to the City of Launceston council by Artas Architects, on behalf of TasTAFE.
The $4 million redevelopment of the Alanvale campus will allow for the migration of students from the Launceston CBD campus to consolidate at one location.

Stage one of the redevelopment includes the new nursing, aged care and disability training facilities and the upgrade of IT computer labs.
Works in these areas began on April 15 and are scheduled to be completed in July 2020.
The works will be completed jointly by VOS Construction and Fairbrother, with VOS responsible for the nursing and aged care works and Fairbrother completing the upgrade of the computer labs.
Stage two of the redevelopment will include the revamp of A2 block, which includes the existing library, creative industries and client services area.
TasTAFE will sell the Launceston CBD campus once the relocation of all students is complete. Ms Dodd said the redevelopment of Alanvale had not been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and timelines were still in place.
