The Huntingfield subdivision will help expand the vibrant Kingborough community and provide housing options that meet the needs and budgets of more Tasmanians.
The land lies east of the Channel Highway, between Huntingfield and the North West Bay Golf Club.
The site was rezoned through the Housing Land Supply Act 2018 and includes:
- 34 hectares of Open Space Zone
- 34 hectares of General Residential Zone, Inner Residential Zone and a strategic pocket of the Local Business Zone.
Huntingfield is being developed in stages because it is a complex subdivision involving numerous statutory assessments and consultation periods, and civil and subdivision construction works, and it is essential that we deliver land parcels at every opportunity.
Increasing housing supply
The Huntingfield subdivision will offer a well-located, modern, mixed-residential design of around 460 lots that includes a range of lot sizes.
Some smaller lots and terraces will allow more families an opportunity for home ownership and housing more suitable for older Tasmanians to age in place.
Supporting the economy
The project will bring significant ongoing economic and social benefits to the local area and the broader Tasmanian community including job creation in the building industry.
Subdivision works at Huntingfield for Stages 1a, 1b and 1i have commenced and this contact alone will deliver an almost $43 million boost for the Kingborough and local economies.
Community consultation has provided important input into the development and refinement of the Huntingfield master plan.
Stages two and three have been assessed by the Australian Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) following a referral under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 due to the potential for the development to affect listed species in the adjacent Peter Murrell Reserve, most notably the endangered forty-spotted pardalote.
DCCEEW formally approved the measures to protect the affected species on 21 September 2022.
Feedback from this consultation helped inform changes to the master plan of the site, and also resulted in changes to the stage one design.
