The Tasmanian Planning Scheme shapes our communities and our future, but it puts at risk Tasmania’s natural and cultural heritage, lifestyle and democracy.
State Planning Provisions Review

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme (i.e. the State Planning Provisions) must be reviewed every five years. The first State Planning Provisions Review started in 2022 and continues. 162 submissions were received. PMAT’s submission (here and submission 150) raised 22 key concerns with associated recommendations for improvement (see page 9 for key concerns). PMAT also engaged three planning experts to make specific recommendations to improve Tasmania’s residential standards, and how we best manage built heritage and biodiversity through the planning system. We also re-submitted the Heart Foundation 2016 submission to re-emphasise the critical link between planning and mental and physical health.
