Tasmanian planning reforms and current reviews
The Government is undertaking planning reforms to improve and build Tasmania’s planning system.
Phase 1 Planning Reforms involves the introduction of the new Tasmanian Planning Scheme, which is nearing completion.
- Where can I find out more on the Tasmanian Planning Scheme?
- Which municipalities currently have the Tasmanian Planning Scheme in effect?
Phase 2 Planning Reforms will deliver:
- the Tasmanian Planning Policies to provide a statewide vision and strategic framework for the planning system
- an improved regional land use planning framework providing improvements to processes for preparing, assessing, reviewing and consulting the community for the regional land use strategies
- comprehensive reviews of the three regional land use strategies.
Review of the State Planning Provisions
The State Planning Provisions (SPPs) are due for their 5-yearly statutory review in 2022. This process will commence with the release of a scoping paper for public comment to identify the issues to be addressed. The SPPs will also be reviewed following the making of the Tasmanian Planning Policies.
In the meantime, work has commenced to:
- review the residential development standards derived from Planning Directive No. 4.1 (PDF, 1.0 MB); and
- prepare consistent development standards for apartment developments as part of the Medium Density Residential Development Standards Project
More information will be provided as the projects progress.
