Tasmanian Planning Scheme

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS)  will apply across the whole of the State.  It will replace the current planning schemes that operate in each Council area.  The intent of the TPS is to achieve, as much as possible, consistency in the way planning rules are applied across the State.

The State Planning Provisions SPPs were made (approved) by the Minister in February 2017.  The SPPs set out the way a Planning Scheme operates, the zones that can apply to land, for example Rural Zone, Agriculture Zone, General Residential Zone; and the planning rules for use and development within each zone.

The SPPs also include mandatory Codes relating to various matters that occur across the various zones. For example, Natural Values Code, Bushfire-Prone Areas Code, Signs Code, Coastal Erosion Hazard Code and Landslip Code.

The SPPs are available below:

A Fact Sheet outlining the structure and process of the TPS is available below:
