Draft Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule

Representations are invited by 21 September 2020 on the Draft Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule (Draft Glenorchy LPS)

The Draft Glenorchy LPS is the local part of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme and will apply only to the Glenorchy municipality.  The Draft Glenorchy LPS is now on public exhibition and open for comments from 23 July 2020 until 21 September 2020.

What is the Tasmanian Planning Scheme?

The Tasmanian government has legislated to replace the current planning schemes for each Tasmanian council with a single, Tasmania-wide, planning scheme to manage the use and development of land. 

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made up of two parts: The State Planning Provisions and Local Provisions Schedules, which apply to individual local government areasThe diagram below shows how this fits together.

The State Planning Provisions have been approved by the Minister for Planning.  They are available here on the Tasmanian Government's Planning Reform Page here.

The Draft Glenorchy LPS must be read with the State Planning Provisions to see what type of development can be carried out in each Zone or under each Code.

The State Planning Provisions have no effect in Glenorchy until the Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule is approved.

What is the Draft Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule (LPS)?

The Draft Glenorchy LPS will be the new planning scheme that applies to Glenorchy City, once it is formally approved. 

The Draft Glenorchy LPS will control how land in our city can be used and developed. It contains maps of the Zones and Codes that apply to use and development, as well as the specific provisions that apply to each parcel of land (for example, urban design and heritage outcomes).

Glenorchy City Council endorsed the contents of the Draft Glenorchy LPS at its meeting of 26 November 2018. Since then, the Draft Glenorchy LPS has been under review by the Tasmanian Planning Commission to make sure it meets all the requirements set out in the relevant legislation.  The Commission has now confirmed that it does, and that it is ready to go on public exhibition.
