  • Agricultural Land Mapping Project: Background Report, May 2017 (pdf, 2.1 MB)
    This report sets out the background and methodology for the agricultural land mapping project. The project was commissioned by the Department of Justice, Planning Policy Unit (now the State Planning Office, Department of Premier and Cabinet) on behalf of the Minister for Planning and Local Government to assist councils in spatially applying in the Agriculture Zone in the Local Provisions Schedules. Two mapping layers have been produced and are published on the Land Information System Tasmania (LIST) website entitled ‘Land Potentially Suitable for Agriculture Zone’ and ‘Potential Agricultural Land Initial Analysis’. The mapping should be used in conjunction with Guideline No.1 – Local Provisions Schedules (LPS): zone and code application.
