Exhibition Period

When the Tasmanian Planning Commission (TPC) instructs Kingborough Council to begin public consultation, the exhibition period will begin. During the exhibition period, Council will provide maps and information, public information sessions and be available to help people understand what zoning and overlays are proposed for their land.

We will also be encouraging people to make a representation (public submission) to indicate support or to raise objections or concerns with any planning changes proposed.


As soon as we are instructed to begin consultation, Council will inform the public through the media, our website and social media channels and through email if you sign up to register for notifications. Sign up to be notified by email.

In the meantime, Council staff can assist with any enquiries you may have about the new scheme and how the changes may potentially affect your property. Please call us on 6211 8200, email kc@kingborough.tas.gov.au or fill out our Enquiry Form.

The public exhibition period will run for 60 days. The dates will determined by the TPC.


During the consultation period, Kingborough Council will host public information sessions at Kingborough community halls like:

  • Kettering/Margate
  • Bruny Island
  • Kingston

At these sessions, people will be able to view the LPS mapping, view factsheets and speak to Planners and Council staff. More specific information will be posted once the exhibition period begins.


For the duration of the exhibition period, members of the community will be able to make written representations to indicate support for or to raise objections or concerns with any planning changes proposed.
