Ancillary Dwelling Grant Program Extension

This initiative will provide an additional 250 grants for property owners seeking to construct new ancillary dwellings that will be made available for long-term rental.

Automated Traffic Enforcement

This initiative will reintroduce mobile speed cameras to Tasmania to detect speeding offences as well as support the capacity to trial and implement mobile phone, seatbelt, and average speed enforcement over time.

Derwent Ferry Service

This initiative will fund the second year of the Derwent Ferry trial into 2023 and includes funding to support the establishment of an ongoing service between Hobart and Bellerive.

Notes:

1.    The increase in Infrastructure Tasmania in 2022-23 primarily reflects a change in the Australian Government funding profile for the Launceston City Deal and new initiatives including Inbound Tourism Support, AFL Team Task Force and Stadium Feasibility Study.

2.    The increase in Road User Services in 2023-24 reflects the funding profile of the new initiative, Automated Traffic Enforcement.

3.    The increase in Passenger Transport reflects the new initiative, Derwent Ferry Service and the rollover of unspent appropriation from 2021‑22 for the Additional Bus Capacity initiative.

4.    The decrease in Grants and Subsidies reflects the funding profile of Administered Expenses for Marine and Safety Tasmania, and West Coast Wilderness Railway.

5.    The decrease in Energy and Emissions Reduction Policy and Advice in 2022‑23 reflects the transfer of this Output to the Department of Treasury and Finance.

6.    The decrease in Forestry Policy and Reform in 2022-23 reflects the transfer of this Output to the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania.

Notes:

1.    The Annual Red Tape Reduction Report produced and published each year lists red tape issues identified for Government to take action on and reports the progress against these actions.

2.    This measure includes investment where the Office of the Coordinator-General has: directly engaged with an entity to promote or support new, or retain, investment in Tasmania; provided investment facilitation services including advice, process identification and navigation, and engagement with linked parties; or provided recommendations to Government resulting in financial or other support to a project.

3.    Travel restrictions and border closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have had a significant impact on the international education sector and student numbers nationally. While borders have now reopened, impacts to student numbers are expected to continue in 2022-23 due to a range of factors.

4.    Figures include nominations under the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) and Skilled Work Regional visa (subclass 491). The ability to achieve the 2022-23 target will be dependent upon the number of nomination places allocated to Tasmania for the 2022-23 financial year. The nominations are unlikely to be confirmed until early in 2022-23.

5.    The value of premium merchandise exports is calculated as total goods exports less iron ores and concentrates.

6.    This measure captures the number of advice services and assistance packages, provided by Business Tasmania, Enterprise Centres, Digital Ready and targeted industry-specific grants programs. The 2020‑21 actual outcome reflected a significant increase in enquiries to Business Tasmania in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

7.    Satisfaction and outcomes are measured by feedback from the Minister’s Office and, where appropriate, colleagues and clients. The feedback focuses on the quality, relevance, and timeliness of advice.

Notes:

1.    This is a new performance measure. The 10‑Year Infrastructure Pipeline is now being published through an online database. The information is gathered from the asset owners, including Tasmanian government agencies, government businesses, relevant statutory authorities, local government and also includes a number of known major private sector projects.

2.    This is a new performance measure. Tier 1 projects are those assessed under the Infrastructure Tasmania Project Assurance Framework as being ‘High Risk, High Value’ projects, following a weighted risk score matrix and risk criteria.

3.    This measure has been amended to apply only to speed limit reviews on the state road network. A different process is applied to requests for speed limit changes on local government roads, therefore future results will not be comparable to previously reported figures. This measure is calculated from the date a request is made to undertake a speed limit review to the date the technical review is completed.

4.    This is a new performance measure. The Department is working towards the goal of having a road corridor strategy in place for every state road in Tasmania as part of its strategic approach to transport planning.

5.    This is a new performance measure. The statutory timeframe for responding to heavy vehicle access permit applications under section 156 of the Heavy Vehicle National Law is 28 days.

6.    Satisfaction and outcomes are largely measured by feedback from the Ministers Office, Secretary, relevant Deputy Secretary and, where appropriate, colleagues and clients.

7.    This data is based on four automatic number plate recognition cameras installed on transport safety vehicles, with a target of collecting 50 000 images per month.

8.    This is a new performance measure. Serious casualties include road fatalities and road serious injuries (admitted to hospital for 24 hours or longer).

9.    This is a measure of the effectiveness of government strategies to ensure that the average age of buses on government contracted services is appropriate. This target reflects that the average bus age varies over the duration of bus contracts. The lowest average bus age is generally at the commencement of contracts due to incentives for the purchase of newer fleet vehicles, with the average age then increasing over the course of the contract.

10.  This is a new performance measure. Network reviews are an important way for the Department to ensure that General Access bus services are fit for purpose and being delivered in the most efficient manner. This measure includes reviews of both trial and existing services, with reviews varying in size and complexity (classified as minor, moderate and major).

11.  This is a new performance measure that will be based on operator reporting of the number of dropped trips. It should be noted that there are a number of different reporting requirements in place. As a result, it is proposed to report for operators individually for a 12-month period. In the future, accuracy is likely to improve with the introduction of common ticketing and realtime information. The 2021-22 target of 95 per cent is an acknowledgement of the impact to services of the COVID‑19 pandemic and issues relating to driver shortages.

12.  This is a new performance measure, and reporting on this measure will commence in 2022-23. The timeliness of responding to customers about maintenance requests on state roads is a key measure of our success in meeting customer needs. Depending on the nature of the maintenance request, the prescribed timeframes differ.

Notes:

1.    TMAG total visitors represent the combined number of visits made across the TMAG sites. The new target for 2022-23 indicates a growth in attendance, though not to pre-COVID-19 levels. This is due to the slow re-emergence of attendee and participant confidence.

2.    Total Visitor Engagement represents the visitation and engagement across both physical and digital platforms and includes all visits to museum sites; visits to TMAG websites measured in sessions; social media engagement across all platforms; and visits to TMAG programming taking place at other sites.

3.    The decrease for 2020‑21 reflects the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of the Safe Events and Activities in Tasmania Framework, which places caps on capacity numbers depending on a risk approach as outlined in the plan. The target for 2022-23 is reflective of a non-Ten Days on the Island festival year, and remerging confidence in cultural attendees post the COVID-19 pandemic.

4.    Contribution to the Gross State Product of selected arts industries is taken from the annual ABS publication 5220.0 Australian National Accounts: State Accounts released each year in November. Prior year actual figures are revised in accordance with: Cat.5220.0 Table 7 ‑ Expenditure, Income and Industry Components of Gross State Product, Column EU, Row 41 = $372 million, multiplied by Arts factor (SWG figure) of 37.2 per cent = $138.38 million. 2021‑22 figure is the target, as ABS figures are to be released on 19 November 2022. The updated historical figures incorporate new and revised national estimates that reflect changes in methods, concepts, classifications and data sources to maintain a consistent time series. The projected increase for 2022-23 is based on a return to more regular programming and cultural activity, with the likely removal of emergency government support and small museum sector and volunteer capacity returning.

5.    Attendance figures from Administered Outputs and identified Special Projects in State Budget Papers. The reduction in 2020‑21 was due to the combined impact of the Theatre Royal/Hedberg redevelopment and the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on venue availability and audience capacity. It is anticipated there will be a return to more regular programming and cultural activity and the return of confidence in ticket buying patrons. In 2022-23 the Hedberg will also return to full capacity.

6.    Number of Tasmanian artists, arts workers and museum-workers employed on paid engagements in approved applications during the financial year. This total also includes a number of works purchased under the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme.

7.    The industry standard ratio for developed projects advancing into production is 10:1. A lower ratio is a better result. The ratio varies due to the time taken by some projects to achieve a production outcome. The KPI is calculated over three years. This ratio may result in previously reported actuals being restated to reflect the final actual position.

8.    The calculation of the actual Tasmanian spend leveraged by productions is updated as projects acquit against investments. This spend may result in previously reported actuals being restated to reflect the final action position.

Roads

Funding for roads infrastructure projects over the Budget and Forward Estimates now totals approximately $2.7 billion with $712.5 million allocated in 2022‑23. The total allocation for roads projects includes $1.6 billion of Australian Government funding.

The Government is committed to the construction of the New Bridgewater Bridge, which has a target of traffic on the bridge by the end of 2024 and completion in 2025. This timeframe will ensure future infrastructure needs continue to be met by the Government’s strategic investment in important projects for the Tasmanian community.

Road investment is now generally managed on a program basis to allow flexibility in project delivery and enable adjustments to be made in response to stakeholder feedback, approvals timeframes and other external factors. This is an important change that has occurred, which provides greater certainty for both the construction industry and the Department. These programs include:

·       Freight Capacity Upgrade Program;

·       Great Eastern Drive;

·       Greater Hobart Traffic Solution;

·       Launceston and Tamar Valley Traffic Vision;

·       Northern Roads Package;

·       Roads of Strategic Importance;

·       South East Traffic Solution;

·       State Road Upgrades ‑ North West and West Coast Region;

·       State Road Upgrades ‑ Northern Region;

·       State Road Upgrades ‑ Southern Region; and

·       Urban Congestion Fund.

Maintenance of the 3 780 kilometres of roads and 1 241 bridges and major culverts on the state road network is an ongoing and part of the Capital Investment Program.

For more information in relation to the Roads Program see chapter 6 of The Budget Budget Paper No 1.

Notes:

1.    The decrease in Appropriation revenue ‑ operating in 2022‑23 reflects the completion of existing Budget initiatives, fixed‑term COVID‑19 related funding and 2021 election commitments.

2.    The variation in Grants reflects the cash flow of Australian Government funding, largely relating to the Roads Program.

3.    The increase in Interest primarily reflects the activities of Tasmania Development and Resources in administering loan schemes.

4.    The decrease in Other revenue reflects the finalisation of the reimbursement of costs associated with the MyState Bank Arena Upgrade from the Department of Communities Tasmania in 2021‑22.

5.    The increase in Employee benefits in 2022‑23 primarily reflects the impact of 2021 election commitments and the additional funding for Infrastructure Tasmania Operational Funding.

6.    The increase in Supplies and consumables primarily reflects additional funding for Strategic Freight Routes  Maintenance.

7.    The decrease in Grants and subsidies reflects the completion of existing Budget initiatives and 2021 election commitments.

8.    The decrease in Borrowing costs primarily reflects the cash flow of 2021 election commitments including Supporting Jobs at INCAT, and Building and Construction Support Loan Scheme.

Government Contribution to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, one of the world’s finest small orchestras, continues to receive State Government support.

Theatre Royal

The Government’s commitment to funding the Theatre Royal recognises the theatre’s significant role in Tasmanian history, as an integral venue for the performing arts in Tasmania, and foundational to the recent Hedberg development.

2.    The variation in Investments reflects the current estimates of loan advances, including for the Supporting Jobs at INCAT initiative and the Building and Construction Support Loan Scheme.

3.    The variation in this item in 2023 reflects revised estimates based on 30 June 2021 actuals.

4.    The increase in Property, plant and equipment in 2022‑23 reflects the estimates for expenditure associated with the MyState Bank Arena Upgrade in 2021‑22.

5.    The increase in Infrastructure from 2022‑23 primarily reflects the Capital Investment Program for roads. Refer to Table 11.8 Capital Investment Program for further information on capital projects.

6.    The variation in Interest bearing liabilities reflects an increase in borrowings from Tasmanian Public Finance Corporation to fund the activities of Tasmania Development and Resources, including the Supporting Jobs at INCAT initiative and the Building and Construction Support Loan Scheme.

2.    The variation in this item reflects revised estimates based on 30 June 2021 actuals.

3.    Other liabilities are primarily third-party revenues collected by the Department through motor registration receipts held pending transfer to the third-party including MAIB, State Revenue Office and Tasmania Fire Service.

4.    The change in Contributed capital and Accumulated Funds primarily reflects the transfer of net assets to the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania in relation to the Forest Practices Authority.
