Planning schemes in Tasmania are statutory documents implementing the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 (LUPAA). Each municipality in Tasmania is currently governed by an ‘interim’ scheme as part of broader planning reform that is being implemented across the whole of Tasmania by the State Government.
LUPAA identifies an assessment process for planning applications, and the Scheme provides the detailed assessment criteria to be used by Council for each application. Issues to be considered include property zone, use class, proposal design, impact on others and environmental issues.
To find out more about the planning scheme, you can visit:
- The State Government iPlan website to view the Kingborough Interim Planning Scheme 2015
- The List website to view the zoning maps
- Valid applications lodged prior to the Kingborough Interim Planning Scheme 2015, that have not yet been determined, are assessed under the former Kingborough Planning Scheme 2000.
