Mayor's Message

Mayor Peter Freshney's Message

Tuesday 8th May 2018

Planning for the future of the PORT SORELL CARAVAN PARK has commenced with Sustainable Park Solutions appointed to oversee the project.

Council is keen to enhance the amenities, facilities and vehicle/pedestrian flow of the park whilst ensuring that the visitor experience sustainably meets expectations.

A public workshop will be held from 2.00pm to 4.00pm this Saturday May 12 in the Port Sorell Memorial Hall where lead consultant, Matt Williams, will share ideas and collect community and holiday maker feedback.

Based on these discussions, Matt’s team will then finalise the Park Redevelopment Plan before submitting recommendations to Council by the end of June 2018.

I strongly encourage you to attend the workshop and have your say on the future of this key tourist destination.

Congratulations to the LATROBE CROQUET CLUB who not only hosted the State Doubles Championships last month but also won the event.

The successful team was certainly diverse, comprising of the youngest member of the club, Curtis Mead and one of the most experienced, Roberta Campbell - well done State Champs!

If you would like to give croquet a try, please phone Chris on 0499 990 239.

117 women from the Port Sorell community accessed the BREASTSCREEN TASMANIA Mobile Unit when it visited Port Sorell in April.

The BreastScreen Tasmania website provides valuable information on the breast screening service along with mobile unit itineraries and various ways to make an appointment.

The GILBERT STREET ROAD CLOSURE at the Bass Highway has been extended to 18 May inclusive to complete this intersection upgrade.


Tuesday 24th April 2018

Immediately following tomorrow’s Latrobe Citizens Commemorative Service the LATROBE COURT HOUSE MUSEUM will host a display of World War I memorabilia to commemorate 100 years since the end of the Great War (1914-1918).  The memorabilia, kindly lent by local resident Dr Patrick Goss, includes several rare and valuable items and will be available for viewing for an hour on ANZAC Day.  The exhibition will then continue until the end of May during normal Museum hours - Tuesday to Friday 1.30pm to 3.30pm.  A donation upon entry to the Museum, which assists in the upkeep of the facility, is always greatly appreciated.


The ST. PATRICK’S CHILD CARE CENTRE BOARD OF MANAGEMENT are currently looking for an interested community member to join the committee.  The Child Care Centre caters for newborns through to five year olds, for long day care, outside school hours care and vacation care.  The volunteer Board position would involve 6 to 8 meetings a year and I strongly encourage you to phone Sharon Hughes at St Patrick’s on 64263048 if you are interested in learning more about the vacancy.


Thank you to members of the Tarleton Fire Brigade for hosting the recent Tarleton COMMUNITY INFORMATION EVENING.  These meetings are a great way for residents and ratepayers to connect with Council in a relaxed and informal setting.  I look forward to seeing members of the community from the Wesley Vale / Moriarty area for the next Community Information Evening which will be held in the Moriarty Hall on Thursday June 21st.
