Landscape Conservation Zone Information Sessions

Below mentioned information sessions are now fully booked.

Please get in contact with Council’s Customer Service team on phone: 6211 8200 or email to make an appointment outside of below dates.

Kingborough Council will host two information sessions over two dates for community members about the proposed Landscape Conservation Zone (LCZ).

The Tasmanian State Government is moving all Councils to a single Planning Scheme, known as the Tasmanian Planning Scheme.

Kingborough is moving from 33 existing zones to 30 new zones as well as a suite of new codes.

One of the new zones which has not existed before is the Landscape Conservation Zone.

Some Councils have already converted to new Tasmanian Planning Scheme, some are in the process of engaging communities about it and some, like Kingborough are still busy finalising the zoning mapping and are yet to be given approval to start a formal consultation with the community about the proposed changes.

Although Kingborough has not been asked to start the formal consultation process by the State Government, some community members have expressed a need to receive more information about the Landscape Conservation Zone.

Due to the heightened interest in this zone change, Council has decided provide an opportunity for the community to come and talk to Council’s planners about the new zone and the process going forward.

Information sessions will be held over two dates to discuss the Landscape Conservation Zone with Council Planning staff.

The first sessions will be at Margate Hall, on Tuesday 21 February from 5.30 to 7.30pm, and the second ones on Friday 24 February from 12pm to 2pm at the Kingborough Community Hub, Middleton room.

There will be further consultation at a later date, but these two dates are being offered now to provide the community with an additional opportunity to talk to our Planning staff about LCZ.

Kingborough Draft LPS Enquiry Form

If you have any questions about the incoming Tasmanian Planning Scheme, please feel free to fill out the form below and we will try our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

You can also fill out this form if you want to be informed when we commence with the formal exhibition of the new Planning Scheme.

However, we encourage everyone to participate in the formal public exhibition period which is anticipated to occur in the first half of 2023.

During the exhibition period people will be able to confirm what zoning is being proposed for their land and may make a formal representation if they want to indicate support, object, or raise a concern with what is being proposed.
