Kingborough Council hosted 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 decided to 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 were held over two dates to discuss the Landscape Conservation Zone with Council Planning staff.
The first sessions were at Margate Hall, on Tuesday 21 February 2023 from 5.30 to 7.30pm, and the second ones on Friday 24 February 2023 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.
