Construction of the plan’s Wirksworth development will create 50 full-time construction jobs and provide total economic activity of $30 million.
The Wirksworth facility will be the first of its kind in Tasmania and provide high-quality care and accommodation to elderly residents who are financially disadvantaged, homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
