Welcome to Kentish Council


Investigating Tasmania’s pumped hydro potential

Tasmania has taken another step towards doubling its clean energy and securing the lowest possible power prices, with the identification of 14 potential pumped hydro opportunities around the state.

The Cradle Coast Waste Management Group (CCWMG) has up to $15,000 of funding available to share across community organisations within North-West Tasmania.

Council is seeking your input into proposed road classifications

Kentish Council is in the process of reviewing the current road hierarchy. A road hierarchy helps establish a desired road standard at times of reconstruction helps prioritise major works and assists justifying the level and frequency of maintenance and expenditure a road receives. Council is seeking feedback from members of the Kentish community on the proposed classification changes.

  Kentish Council offices are open Monday to Friday from 8:00am until 4:30pm.
