Planning schemes

Hobart is governed by two planning schemes - the Hobart Interim Planning Scheme 2015 and the Sullivans Cove Planning Scheme 1997.

These planning schemes set out policies and requirements for the use, development, protection and conservation of land within the municipality.

The assessment process for development applications under both schemes is governed by the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993.

The Sullivans Cove Planning Scheme 1997 covers the area surrounding the Hobart waterfront, including Princes Wharf, Macquarie Wharf, Franklin Wharf, the cenotaph, the railyards, Wapping and Salamanca.

The scheme is overseen by the City of Hobart. Between 2005 and 2011, the scheme was administered by the Sullivans Cove Waterfront Authority.
