The Tasmanian Planning Scheme will apply across the whole of the State. It will replace the current planning scheme’s that operate in each Council area. The Intent of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS) is to achieve, as much as possible, consistency in the way planning rules are applied across the State.
The State Planning Provisions (SPP’s) were made (approved) by the Minster in February 2017. The SPP’s 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 are available below:

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