Glenorchy Interim Planning Scheme

The Glenorchy Interim Planning Scheme 2015 sets out the way land can be used and developed within Glenorchy. The scheme is on the State Government’s iPlan website - view the Glenorchy Interim Planning Scheme 2015 (external link).

The State Government’s iPlan system is the legal electronic database version of the scheme under planning legislation. However, our interactive webmap (external link) has extra information – such as maps of heritage-listed places and specific properties referenced in the planning scheme by their Certificate of Title.

You can also get information on the zoning of the land you are interested in and whether any overlays (such as biodiversity or inundation hazards) apply to the land through ‘my planning enquiry’ module on the iPlan website (external link). 

Please be aware that not all codes are mapped (such as bushfire-prone areas), and other matters such as car parking and stormwater management requirements appear in other areas in the planning scheme.

The State Government is developing a single state-wide Planning Scheme that will replace the Interim Planning Scheme. More information on Tasmanian Planning Reform and the State Planning Provisions is available on the Tasmanian Planning Commission website (external link).

Guidelines for use and development

The planning scheme has rules for use and development, such as height limits and what you need to consider if you want to run a business from home. You can get more information on the most common types of use and development from the PDF fact sheets listed below:

You can contact us if you think someone is not complying with the rules of the planning scheme and is undertaking unlawful use or development

A single planning scheme for Tasmania
