Regional Land Use Planning Framework

The current planning legislation provides little guidance on the regional land use strategies (RLUS), including who prepares them, and the assessment, approval and review processes. There are no requirements for community engagement, or the content and timeframes for the strategies.

A review has commenced to implement an improved regional land use planning framework. A Discussion Paper will be released for public consultation in the coming months to assists with establishing in the improved regional land use planning framework.

The framework once implemented will assist with the comprehensive reviews of the three RLUS and their future implementation, monitoring and review. The review of the RLUS will follow the making of the Tasmanian Planning Policies (TPPs) and the introduction of the improved regional land use planning framework.

The RLUS will be reviewed for consistency with the TPPs. The reviews will be conducted in accordance with the legislated processes and guidelines for RLUS established by the new regional land use planning framework.

More information will be provided as the project progresses.
