Tasmanian Planning Scheme

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme, including the West Tamar Local Provisions Schedule, is now effective in the municipality.  It was formally gazetted on 9 February 2022.

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 Local Provisions Schedule

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

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme including the LPS can be viewed on the Tasmanian Planning Commission Website and the mapping can be viewed on LISTmap by adding the Tasmanian Planning Scheme zone and overlay layers.

Draft Amendment AMD 02/22 to the Local Provisions Schedule – Environmental Management Zone review

West Tamar Council as the Planning Authority has prepared a draft amendment to the Local Provisions Schedule under s 40D and s40F of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993.


The draft amendments relate to 66 properties located in Badger Head, Beauty Point, Blackwall, Deviot, Exeter, Gravelly Beach, Greens Beach, Kelso, Rosevears, Rowella, Sidmouth, Trevallyn, and York Town that are currently in the Environmental Management Zone. 


A review of the Environmental Management Zone and how the Tasmanian Planning Scheme regulates use and development identified that the zone was not suitable for some privately owned land.  The draft amendments are proposing to change the zone of these properties to a zone that is consistent with their intended future use.


A letter has been sent to each affected landowner about the proposed amendments.


The draft amendments and supporting documents may be viewed here.


The exhibition period is now closed.
