Tasmanian Planning Scheme

UPDATE

 

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. 


The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made up of two components:

 

1.         The State Planning Provisions

2.         The Local Provisions Schedule.

 

The intent of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme is to achieve as much consistency as possible in the planning rules that apply across the State.

 

State Planning Provisions 

 

The State Planning Provisions (SPPs) have been approved by the Minister for Planning.

 

You can view the provisions at the planning reform website.

 

West Tamar Draft Local Provisions Schedule

 

The West Tamar draft Local Provisions Schedule (draft LPS) relates to our specific Council area and allows for planning rules that cater for the unique qualities of the West Tamar.

 

The Public Exhibition period ended on 30 April 2021. 

 

On 17 December 2021, the Tasmanian Planning Commission issued notices to the Council under sections 35K(1)(a) and section 35KB of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 (the Act) to modify the draft LPS and to substantially modify the draft LPS.

 

A copy of the notices are available below.

 

Under section 51 of the Act, applications that are validly made 7 days after the notices were issued must be assessed as though the LPS, as modified, is in effect. 

 

This means the Tasmanian Planning Scheme and the West Tamar Local Provisions Schedule (as thought it were modified) will be used to asses and decide applications validly made after 24 December 2021.

 

While Council makes the modifications required by the Tasmanian Planning Commission you will need to refer to the draft LPS as publicly exhibited (links provided below) and the list of modifications to be made.

 

Once the modifications are made, the LPS will be available on LISTmap and on iPlan.
