Draft Local Provisions Schedule

Planning Reform: The Tasmanian Planning Scheme - The Tasmania Planning Commission has directed Council to publicly exhibit its modified draft Local Provisions Schedule under section 35B of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 (the Act).


EXHIBITION OF DRAFT DORSET LOCAL PROVISION SCHEDULE

The Tasmanian Planning Commission (the Commission) has directed Council to publicly exhibit its modified draft Dorset Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) under section 35B of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 (the Act).

The Dorset Council invited written representations on the relevant exhibition documents in relation to the draft Dorset LPS from Monday, 4 April 2022 until midnight Monday, 6 June 2022.  PUBLIC SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.

The relevant exhibition documents in relation to the draft Dorset LPS and relevant supporting documents, including the State Planning Provisions (SPPs) and lists of provisions required to transition from the Dorset Interim Planning Scheme 2013, are available for viewing on the Commission website at www.planning.tas.gov.au or from the links provided further on below.


 

CONSIDERATION OF REPRESENTATIONS

The Council will consider the representations that were received and provide a report to the Commission on those representations. The Commission will then consider all representations received in response to the draft LPS during the exhibition period, and conduct public hearings on the representations and other matters it is required to consider. Once hearings have concluded, the Commission will prepare a report to the Minister for Planning which includes the Commission’s recommendations.

Further information about the hearing process is available on the Commission’s website.


COMMENCEMENT OF THE TASMANIAN PLANNING SCHEME

After the Commission has completed its consideration of the draft LPS, with the agreement of the Minister, it can then approve the LPS.  The LPS will come into effect on a date published in the Tasmanian Government Gazette by the Commission.

Once the LPS comes into effect it forms part of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS) and establishes how the TPS will apply to land within the Dorset municipality. The TPS will replace the current Dorset Interim Planning Scheme 2013 and it is anticipated that it will be operational by late 2022 – early 2023.
