The Mt Wellington Cableway Company’s proposal for a commercial centre on the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington, aerial tramway up the face of the mountain, associated infrastructure and works is now open for public comment. If you live in Hobart you can make a submission about the proposal.

The full planning application is available to view online here.

All documentation can also be viewed at the City of Hobart’s customer service centre at 16 Elizabeth Street (cnr Davey Street), Hobart.


The City of Hobart’s kunanyi/Mount Wellington Cable Car proposal page with information about the Council’s timeline and four ways to make a representation can be found here.

There is no rush – we have until Tuesday 22 June to submit our representations.

By the end of the week Residents Opposed to the Cable Car will be publishing a detailed representation guide with key points and directions on how to make a representation. Over the next month, ROCC will also be hosting a number of submission writing events to bring people together with experts to help with this process.

Like and follow Respect the Mountain on Facebook, or follow Respectthemtn on Instagram, so we can let you know when the guide goes live and more about the submission writing events.
