The Circular Head Council has established this page to collect residents' views on a number of projects.
PUBLIC EXHIBITION - Draft Public Art Policy
Circular Head Council is seeking community feedback regarding the Draft Public Art Policy from 5 September to 17 October 2020.
Public art can create a unique community identity that informs or enhances a sense of place and can generate iconic branding for the area.
The draft Policy will provide a framework to enable Council to contribute to the support and promotion of public art to reflect and enhance the cultural, natural, built environment of Circular Head for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.
The Draft Public Art Policy provides guidelines for the commissioning process, attribution and management of public art in the Circular Head. Creating a Public Art Advisory Group will be formed from a broad selection of Circular Head community to be engaged for various processes;
- Direct or tendered commission of work – permanent, temporary or ephemeral
- Engagement of artists for specific projects
- Collaborative community-based projects and
- Collaborations with festivals and events.
The policy can be viewed at:

Smithton Library - 134-140 Nelson St, Smithton TAS 7330
The closing date for responses to reach Council is 17 October 2020.

Council has developed a Waste Strategy 2019-24, which is laying the direction for the next five years.
The Strategy aims to reduce waste to landfill by 50% by 2024 and involves continuous improvement in the way Council manages waste generated within the community. To meet this goal, Council must introduce progressive ways to minimise waste to landfill through targeted activities, education and advocacy programs.
Currently, there are two main waste services provided to the community. This includes a kerbside waste and recycling collection service to urban areas ($184 per year) and a kerbside waste collection service to most rural properties ($104 per year). Additionally, all properties within Circular Head pay a Transfer Station contribution of $78 per year to cover the costs of running the White Hills Waste Transfer Station.
We invite you to complete this survey and help us improve the services and facilities provided to the community, as well as provide ideas and suggestions for how to plan for the future.
