Under the Tasmanian Planning Scheme – Central Coast, all residential areas of Turners Beach are now zoned General Residential.  Commercial sites remain Local Business Zone.  The football ground, community hall and bowls club are zoned Recreation.

Land that is north of the Western Rail Line is also subject to the Turners Beach Specific Area Plan (Turners Beach SAP) that forms part of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme – Central Coast

The Council’s planning staff are to undertake a review of the Turners Beach SAP. 

The Turners Beach SAP sets out the types of land uses that can occur in Turners Beach and the standards that may apply to use and development.  Where there is any inconsistency, the Turners Beach SAP overrides the General Residential Zone standards for the use of land and development.

Specific Area Plan General Residential Zone Provisions Local Business Zone Provisions

The current Turners Beach SAP addresses matters such as building height and building envelope, landscaping on private land, the clearance of vegetation on public land and where beach and river access can occur.
