Clarence Interim Planning Scheme 2015

Clarence Interim Planning Scheme 2015

The planning scheme may be amended from time to time by council or through a private application. If you are considering submitting a planning scheme amendment we recommend talking to one of our planning officers first, as it can be a lengthy and expensive process, which is subject to a broad range of considerations, including consistency with the Southern Tasmanian Regional Land Use Strategy Plan.

When an application for a planning scheme amendment is made, we must determine whether or not to initiate and certify the draft amendment under the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993. If initiated and certified, the draft amendment will be advertised for public consultation.  Any representations received are considered by council and a report forwarded to the Tasmanian Planning Commission. The Tasmanian Planning Commission may or may not hold a hearing on the draft amendment, before determining the outcome.

The scheme will be replaced by the Tasmanian Planning Scheme.

Tasmanian Planning Scheme

State Planning Provisions

The State Planning Provisions include the administrative, zone and code provisions and the requirements for Local Provision Schedules that are to apply in the Tasmanian Planning Scheme. Although the State Planning Provisions came into effect on 2 March 2017 as part of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme, they will have no practical effect until a local provision schedule is in effect in a municipal area. More information on the State Planning Provisions can be accessed through the Tasmanian Planning Commission website and the Tasmanian Planning Reform website.

Clarence Local Provision Schedule

Local Provision Schedules are intended to apply the State Planning Provisions while meeting local needs and objectives. They include planning controls to accommodate unique locations such as universities and hospitals, as well as unique development conditions such as building height restrictions. To further meet their communities’ needs, councils are responsible for preparing their local provision schedules in consultation with local stakeholders and community members. Councils must submit their draft local provision schedules to the Tasmanian Planning Commission for consideration prior to the public exhibition and assessment process.

At is meeting on 7 May 2018 Clarence City Council endorsed the contents of the draft Clarence Local Provisions Schedule and it has now been submitted to the Tasmanian Planning Commission for its consideration. View a copy of the agenda, minutes and local provision schedule supporting report. While the reports are available for viewing, council is not seeking submissions at this time.
