Draft Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule

Glenorchy Interim Planning Scheme

The State Government is developing a single State-wide planning scheme that will replace the Glenorchy Interim Planning Scheme 2015. The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made up of two parts: State Planning Provisions and Local Provisions Schedules as shown below.


The State Planning Provisions have been approved by the Minister for Planning and are available here (https://planningreform.tas.gov.au/scheme - external link).

The State Planning Provisions have no effect until the draft Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule (draft Glenorchy LPS) is approved.

What is the draft Glenorchy LPS?

The draft Glenorchy LPS controls how land in our City can be used and developed. It is the mapping of Zones and Codes, and any specific provisions relating to certain land, such as specific urban design controls for the Glenorchy activity centre or heritage controls.

Is the draft Glenorchy LPS final?

No, not yet. Council endorsed the draft Glenorchy LPS at its meeting of 26 November 2018 and sent it to the Tasmanian Planning Commission (the Commission) for assessment. The Council report and associated documents are available by selecting the 26 November 2018 Council meeting agenda and attachments here (http://glenorchy.infocouncil.biz/ - external link).

Before the Commission decides when the draft Glenorchy LPS can be publicly exhibited, they must be sure that it meets all the tests under the planning legislation.

The Commission may require some changes to the draft Glenorchy LPS that Council has already endorsed. If the Commission requires significant changes, then another report to Council to consider the changes would be required. 

When will the draft Glenorchy LPS go on exhibition?

The draft Glenorchy LPS is not on exhibition yet.

More details on the exhibition and how to make a representation on the draft Glenorchy LPS will be given closer to the exhibition date.

Exhibition will be for 60 days and anyone can make a representation during that time on the draft provisions.

What happens when I make a comment on the Draft LPS?

Council has 60 days after the exhibition closes, to consider any representations made on the draft Glenorchy LPS. Council will submit a report on the representations and provide a copy of each representation to the Commission. The Commission will then hold public hearings to consider Council's report and the representations.

If the Minister for Planning approves the Draft Glenorchy LPS, the new scheme will come into operation and replace the Glenorchy Interim Planning Scheme 2015.
