The Tasmanian Planning Commission (TPC) has now issued a notice directing Council to modify the draft Local Provisions Schedule.


This means the Tasmanian Planning Scheme (and the daft LPS as if it were modified) will be used to make decisions on planning applications validly made after 24 December 2021).


This may also have impacts on applications for building works as some Director’s Determinations will come into operation once the Tasmanian Planning Scheme is effective.
