Tasmanian City Council votes
We are tracking the votes of our city councils and debates for projects/changes which impact on bike riding and have included all the decisions we are aware of in this recent council term.
Tasmania’s councils were last elected in October 2022 to serve four-year terms, so the next elections are due in 2026.
If you are aware of an upcoming or past vote on a project which affects bike riding let us know and we’ll add it to our list. Pre 2022 votes can be viewed in our archive.

Devonport City Council
Devonport City Council has a comprehensive bicycle strategy and progress on it is reported to the council each year – in the 2018-22 term all councillors accepted and supported the yearly bike strategy progress reports.
Hobart City Council
Hobart Council had a Bicycle Committee which was renamed during the 2018-22 term to the Hobart Active Transport Committee, which reports its minutes to the Infrastructure Committee. The new 2022-26 council voted to establish a new committee system and so cycling will be covered by the Mobility and Sustainable Infrastructure committees.
Launceston Council has a Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee that reports its minutes to the council, all minutes were accepted unanimously. During 2022 the committee was disbanded and replaced by the Transport Committee.
