Notre Dame Priory is a Benedictine monastic community founded in 2017 and based in Colebrook, Tasmania.

ERA was engaged by Notre Dame Priory to deliver a planning scheme amendment for Jerusalem Estate in Colebrook. The amendment ultimately seeks to enable development of Jerusalem Estate in accordance with the Priory’s long-term vision for the site.

To achieve the Priory’s vision, which would see the site developed into a monastery with associated agriculture, accommodation and tourism elements, ERA has prepared a master plan and a specific area plan. The master plan is an overarching document, which articulates the Priory’s vision and sets out future use and development of the site. The specific area plan is part of the planning scheme amendment required to implement the master plan.

The Jerusalem Estate Specific Area Plan is currently with the relevant assessment authorities for consideration, having been submitted in April 2020.
