The Tasmanian Government is seeking your input on the Scoping Paper of the draft Tasmanian Planning Policies (TPPs). The TPPs will also guide the review of Tasmania’s three regional land use strategies and the Tasmanian Planning Scheme.

One of PMAT’s founding concerns, was that the Tasmanian Planning Scheme was developed in the wrong order. That is the vision for Tasmania needed to be captured through community consultation (i.e. through the development of State Policies), and THEN a planning scheme developed to implement that vision.

The TPP’s have potential to provide some long awaited policy direction to the Tasmanian Planning System. PMAT will continue to advocate for development of State Policies to address the most important issues facing Tasmania. A mix of State Polices and Tasmanian Planning Policies will deliver the best results for the planning system. See the difference between State Policies and Tasmanian Planning Policies here.
