Scope of the draft Tasmanian Planning Policies - Have your say
The Tasmanian Government is seeking your input on the scope of the draft Tasmanian Planning Policies (TPPs).
The TPPs are being developed to provide the first comprehensive, high-level policy framework for the planning system.
The TPPs will shape the future for Tasmania through informing strategic land use planning and the planning rules in the Tasmanian Planning Scheme. The TPPs will also guide the comprehensive review of the 3 regional land use strategies in line with the recommendations from the Premier’s Economic and Social Recovery Advisory Council (PESRAC) report released in March 2021.
The TPPs will cover important issues not just for planners and decision makers, but for all Tasmanians. Over the next 6 weeks you are invited to review the scope of the draft TPPs and think about what other topics and issues should be included.
