This thesis provides direction and guidelines to facilitate the
retention of semi-natural bushland close to Hobart for the benefit
of those who choose to live in such areas, as well as city dwellers.
Fern Tree, the area chosen for study, lies within the belt of bushland
at Hobart's urban fringe. The methodology formulated for the
study of development opportunities and constraints in Fern Tree
required that data be gathered with respect to bio-physical
constraints, population characteristics and the administrative
setting of existing planning strategies. Integration of this
information suggested a preferred development option and a framework
for managing Fern Tree as a residential bushland suburb.
Action needed to achieve this option requires a new planning
strategy for the area. This strategy should be extended to incorporate
the planning and management of the entire urban fringe of
Hobart, including the Wellington Range of which Fern Tree is a part.
