Draft Planning Scheme

Kingborough Council is currently preparing a draft Kingborough Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) to submit to the Tasmanian Planning Commission (TPC).   The Local Provisions Schedule, once approved, will indicate how the State Planning Provisions will apply in the Kingborough Municipality as described below.  This will replace the current Kingborough Interim Planning Scheme 2015.

The new Planning Scheme is divided into two parts:

  • State Planning Provisions (SPPs) – a set of consistent statewide development controls for 23 Zones and 16 Codes that will operate across the State. The SPPs have been approved by the Minister for Planning and will come into force once the Kingborough Local Provisions Schedule is subsequently approved.
  • Local Provisions Schedules (LPSs) – apply at the local municipal level and consist of the Zone maps, Code overlays, Particular Purpose Zones, Specific Area Plans etc. to guide the application of the SPPs.

Once the draft Kingborough LPS is reviewed by the TPC to ensure it meets all of the legislative requirements under the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 and Council receives notification that the legislative process has been satisfied, the TPC will direct Council to carry out public consultation.

As part of the preparation process, Council staff completed a Pre-Exhibition Compliance Briefing with the Tasmanian Planning Commission Panel that has been appointed to make sure that draft LPSs are suitable for public consultation.  The issues discussed at this briefing can be found in the below document.

TPC Kingborough Council: Pre-lodgment compliance briefing issues, 20 June 2018

Once released for public consultation, the draft Kingborough LPS and associated documents will be published on this website for public viewing.

Any Specific Area Plan that is included in the Kingborough draft LPS will be advertised as part of the whole Kingborough draft LPS. Council intends to submit the Kingborough draft LPS to the Tasmanian Planning Commission in the new year around late February.

The draft Kingborough LPS has been prepared and it is now planned to be publicly advertised early in 2020.
