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

The Priory engaged ERA to provide planning assistance that would 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 prepared a master plan and a specific area plan. The master plan articulates the Priory’s vision and sets out future use and development of the site. The specific area plan was part of the planning scheme amendment required to implement the master plan.

The Jerusalem Estate Specific Area Plan was approved in late 2020 and the master plan is currently being delivered through a series of planning applications.

We acknowledge and respect Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners of Lutruwita (Tasmania).

They are the original custodians of our land and waters. We respect their unique ability to care for country and deep spiritual connection to it.

We honour Elders past, present and emerging whose knowledge and wisdom has and will ensure the continuation of culture and traditional practices.
