Planning Scheme Amendments

Planning scheme amendments are requests received by Councils for amendments to planning schemes which sometimes includes a combined planning permit request.  These types of amendment applications are initiated under section 34 of the former provisions of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993.  This process requires Council to certify and advertise a draft amendment for public comment.  Any person may then provide comments to the Council within the prescribed period.  Council then considers any responses and reports to the Tasmanian Planning Commission.  Where comments are received, it is usual practice for the Commission to hold hearings and a decision, which provides opportunity for modifications where approved, is then made.
