New 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 undertake formal public consultation.

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