Tasmanian Planning Scheme

The Tasmanian Government amended the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 in 2015 to introduce a single state-wide planning scheme.  The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made up of two parts: the State Planning Provisions and Local Provisions Schedules as illustrated below:


The Tasmanian Planning Scheme will replace both the Hobart Interim Planning Scheme 2015 and the Sullivans Cove Planning Scheme 1997 when it is finally approved.

Council endorsed the draft Hobart Local Provisions Schedule for submission to the Tasmanian Planning Commission at its meeting on 18 February 2019.  The Commission is currently in the process of assessing the draft Local Provisions Schedule and when that process is completed it will be placed on public exhibition for 60 days.  Members of the public will have the opportunity to make written representations which will be considered by Council and the Commission before the Local Provisions Schedule is finalised.

The relevant Council report and associated documents can be found on the City Planning Committee Agenda (12 February 2019) Item 8.1
