Or come along to our Information Evening on Thursday November 7 at 5.30 - 7.30 pm, UTAS Cradle Coast Campus, 16-20 Mooreville Road.
The University of Tasmania has released the Heads of Agreement (HoA) it signed with Burnie City Council which covers the proposed education precinct at West Park.
The HoA forms the basis of a legally binding agreement between the two parties over a project incorporating the Makers’ Workshop and disused School of Domestic Arts building.
University of Tasmania Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Janelle Allison said the release of the HoA was a small but important step in the life of the project.
“We made a commitment to the community to release the Heads of Agreement and today we honour that commitment,” Professor Allison said.
“Meanwhile, our focus has remained very much on working with the community about the potential of the West Park site, the possible future of the Makers’ Centre and the Makers who work within it.”
The University has conducted a series of workshops with the arts and cultural community, tourism operators and its own staff to develop concepts for the West Park site.
The project includes an accommodation block of 40 units, teaching and learning facilities, landscaping and pathways linking walk and cycle ways to the east and west of the site.

“The Gallery provides an ideal platform for emerging artists, as well as those who want to increase their profile,” UTAS Cradle Coast Campus Exhibitions Coordinator Joanna Gair said.

UTAS has today lodged a development application with the Burnie City Council detailing its plans for an educational precinct at West Park.
The plans include construction of a forty bed accommodation unit, a new computer lab, a mezzanine floor in the Makers' Workshop and refurbishing the currently unoccupied Domestic Arts building.
Diagrams and pictures of the proposed development are now on display at the Makers' Workshop and the UTAS Cradle Coast Campus.
The display at the Cradle Coast Campus will be manned from 10 am until noon this Sunday August 25, during UTAS Open Day; the display at the Makers' Workshop will be manned from 10am until 4pm from Monday the 26th of August until Wednesday the 28th of August.
If the displays are unattended, you are encouraged to register your comments about the development on the 'Your Thoughts' form at the display or email: CCC.Westpark@utas.edu.au
The University of Tasmania has taken community concerns into consideration in the development of a revised Heads of Agreement with the Burnie City Council.
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Regional Development) Professor Janelle Allison said UTAS has consulted with a range of community leaders and interested parties in recent months about the West Park proposal.
The West Park arrangement was initially proposed as a handover of West Park land and the Makers’ Workshop from council to the University, a proposition which caused concern in sections of the community. In the amended Heads of Agreement the ownership of the Makers' Workshop remains with the Burnie City Council, and a prime portion of the West Park land will be made available for a commercial enterprise through a public expression of interest process.
Professor Allison said the University will submit its development application for a 40-unit accommodation block and educational precinct to the Council on Friday. Once the development application is lodged, plans for the UTAS development and associated works will be on display at the Makers’ Workshop and the University’s Mooreville Road campus.
