CRACKS may be starting to emerge in the Burnie City Council’s consensus on its controversial University of Tasmania land deal.
The council last night confirmed its intention to transfer the old Burnie Bowls Club site near West Park to UTAS.
However, former mayor Alvwyn Boyd voted against the motion, arguing the land was needed for parking for the council’s The Point facility at West Park.
Several aldermen stressed last night’s decision was part of a process that would give the public the chance to lodge submissions and/or objections.

The land transfer relates to a council deal with UTAS that will lead to student accommodation being built and teaching facilities introduced in the foreshore area.
The arts-tourism Makers’ Workshop will be leased by the university from the council.
The council’s decision last night only involved the former bowls club land.
The proposal will be advertised and open to public submissions.
The council’s subsequent decision will be open to appeal.
The wider deal has been controversial partly because of differing views about the best uses for the area and partly because of concerns about the Makers’ Workshop’s future.
UTAS appears enthusiastic about the arts- tourism aspects of the centre.
The council will consider rolling out defibrillators to all sporting facilities in the municipality.
That follows a successful motion from Alderman Steve Green, which included seeking part- funding from the state and federal governments.
Alderman Green built on a successful motion from Alderman Jim Altimira that the council consider buying a defibrillator for the Natone, Upper Natone and Stowport communities.
