What is the Tasmanian Planning Scheme?

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is a single statewide planning scheme which will replace the 30 current planning schemes operating in Tasmania. The Tasmanian Planning Scheme will consists of two parts:

  • a set of consistent statewide planning rules called State Planning Provisions and
  • Local Provisions Schedules which will contain the zone and overlay maps and lists that apply the State Planning Provisions and identified special and unique areas for each council area.

The State Planning Provision were made by the Minister on 22 February 2017 and came into effect on 2 March 2017 following a period of public consultation, public hearings and recommendations by the independent Tasmanian Planning Commission.
