The process for the release of the final feasibility study into future Relbia development has taken another step.
The area is regarded by the City of Launceston council as an ideal location for Launceston's expansion and a strategically important area.
As part of the strategic review, which is a recommendation of the Greater Launceston Plan, the council conducted a community consultation.
The council noted the feedback from the community as it awaits the final report of the study.
In the council discussion, it was reiterated that this motion does not approve a restructure in Relbia.
"This is not a final feasibility and what we're going to do with Relbia and the outcome won't be known today," Cr Alan Harris said.
"I think that's probably reasonably important."
The consultation was based on the draft planning document titled Planning Together for the Future of Relbia.
The consultation draft identified that the community felt the council had a predetermined position regarding the pot
Feedback received from that process identified residents were concerned about the impact the change would have on lifestyle, lot sizes and traffic congestion.
Mesh, which is in charge of the report, has a preferred limited change scenario in mind for the restructure.
However, residents believed that scenario would overwhelm the infrastructure of Relbia. The preferred limited change scenario has been put forward to try and address residents concerns about losing the character of the town while opening it to new dwellings.
The community feedback will be used to inform the final Relbia feasibility study into the proposal.
The final study will be presented to the council at a future meeting which will determine the next steps for the project.
All councillors present for the motion voted in favour.
