Council would like to invite you to the below Community Connect sessions, these sessions will be held with Councillors and Senior Management at the following locations:


Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm
Location: Coles Bay Town Hall

Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Location: Bicheno Town Hall


Time: 10:00am – 11:30am
Location: Triabunna Town Hall

Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Location: Swansea Town Hall

Community Connect will enable Council to inform the community of important and relevant matters within the Glamorgan Spring Bay municipal area. There will also be an opportunity for the community to ask questions of Council to facilitate improved understanding of issues. To manage the time efficiently for all, and keep the session focused strategically, routine complaints/requests (e.g., roads / potholes) should be forwarded to Council’s Customer request system rather than be raised at these sessions.

Community participation in direct conversations with Council contributes to more informed decision making. We are very pleased to offer this opportunity to anyone who wants to come along, have a tea/coffee and an informal catch up.

Following community feedback from previous Community Connect sessions, the format for the next sessions will be altered to allow the community more opportunity to communicate and engage with senior management staff and Councillors.

Please note that COVID-19 restrictions current at the time will apply.

We hope to see you there.

Every Tasmanian relies on local government services every day — whether it’s for waste and recycling, parks and playgrounds, footpaths and roads, or other community services. Councils act as a voice for their local communities, advocating for the delivery of services and support, including from other levels of government. Councils also make important decisions about land use, health and the environment which can shape the character, amenity, and economic activity of their municipality.

The Tasmanian Government, through the Local Government Board, is undertaking a Review of the role, function and design of local government in Tasmania. To learn more about the review visit The Future of Local Government Review project page.

This means we all have a stake in local government and its future. Community input in the review is vital. You can get involved in the following ways:

Australian Electoral Commission

The AEC has a register of people who may be offered temporary work during elections, including federal elections, by-elections, plebiscites and referendums.

If you want to be considered for temporary election work, you can submit an online registration of interest.

Priority Strategic Projects 

The purpose of our prospectus is to share more about our municipality with our funding partners, to highlight that Glamorgan Spring Bay is an attractive area for investment, and to make future planning and delivery of vital community projects a smoother and more efficient process. Projects recommended here proceed from councils Ten Year Strategic Plan 2020-2029.

The projects in this document complement existing government strategies and policies and highlight our enthusiasm to improve our region. We are willing to discuss options for funding for any or all of these priority projects and look forward to working with you on building a better community for all of our residents and visitors.

With Tasmanian borders opening and businesses beginning to welcome visitors back to the state, East Coast Tasmania Tourism have launched the first version of their East Coast Tasmania Tourism App.

The app is an essential FREE visitor guide for your holiday on Tasmania’s breathtaking East Coast. With all the information in the palm of your hand, get set to discover one of Australia’s greatest road trips – a journey that will lead you to places and moments that you’ll never forget.

Taking the first step towards a digital resource for East Coast Tasmania, the app will provide engagement, excitement, education and entertainment, with the vision in the future for personalisation using technologies like augmented reality (AR) to provide an enriching experience for visitors.

The first release is just our beginning to capitalising on all that emerging technologies could offer. The App approach provides better user experience when travelling than an ordinary website, with the ability to use it offline, allow for greater flexibility to use your device features and also by receiving customised push notifications.

“We know that people love the unexpected experiences they have while travelling. This app will allow our East Coast Tasmania visitors to look up where they are on our interactive map and be inspired to try something out of the ordinary while travelling”. Jen Fry, Chair East Coast Tasmania Tourism.

The East Coast Tasmania app will allow users to:

  • Plan their trip or search while on the road for things to do, where to stay, where to eat and more. You can even save your favourites businesses or places.
  • Use the app and access information offline as no connection to the internet required for most functions (once downloaded)
  • Explore an interactive zoomable map with integrated directions
  • Stay up to date with important information like weather, emergency information, and road closures

“As the local Liberal Member for Lyons I was delighted to play my part in securing this Tasmanian Government election commitment for the Regional Tourism App and we hope it helps kick-start the East Coast when borders open and interstate visitors return to the beautiful East Coast.’’ Hon Guy Barnett MP

Tasmania’s East Coast is one of the state’s jewels with visitors drawn to its relaxed pace, stunning natural beauty, fantastic food and fresh produce; and world-famous beaches and mountain biking.
Tourism is vital to the East Coast’s local economy, supporting regional jobs and businesses in towns along the coast.
