The Tasmanian Planning Commission directed Council to commence exhibition of the Flinders Draft Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) under section 35B of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 (the Act). The Flinders LPS is on public exhibition and representations are invited on the contents of the LPS to the close of business, 2 August 2021. 

Representations must be related to the matters listed under section 35E of the Act and not be to the effect that the content of the State Planning Provisions should be altered.

The LPS must contain the particular purpose zones, specific area plans, site-specific qualifications and code-applying provisions that are included in the draft LPS by the transitional provisions of Schedule 6 of the Act. Any matter contained in a representation that seeks to change or exclude one or more of those provisions cannot be considered as part of a representation.

The exhibition documents for the Draft Flinders LPS and supporting documents can be viewed during normal business hours at the Flinders Council offices, from 9am until 4:30pm, Monday to Friday at 4 Davies St, Whitemark, and the Tasmanian Planning Commission’s offices from 9am until 5pm, Monday to Friday at Level 3, 144 Macquarie Street, Hobart.

Representations can be made in writing to the General Manager, Flinders Council marked 'CONFIDENTIAL - PLANNING EXHIBITION REPRESENTATION' until close of business Wednesday, 2 August 2021 and submitted:

*Representations must include your name and contact details and clearly identify your concerns with the Draft LPS. Representations will be loaded onto the Commission website and are public documents. 

Tasmanian Planning Scheme

The Tasmanian Government has legislated to replace all planning schemes in Tasmania with a single, Tasmania wide, planning scheme to manage use and development of land. 

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS) was made by the Minister in February 2017 with minor amendments in April 2018. The TPS sets out how the planning scheme operates, the zones that can be applied to land and the planning rules for use and development that occurs within those zones. The State Planning Provisions also include planning rules in codes, relating to matters that occur across various zones. The TPS will provide as much consistency as possible in the planning rules that apply across the State.

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made of up two parts that apply to each local government area:

  • the State Planning Provisions; and
  • the Local Provisions Schedule.

The Draft LPS must be read in conjunction with the TPS to ascertain the use and development requirements in the relevant zones and codes. The TPS also includes planning rules in codes, relating to matters that occur across various zones. The TPS can be accessed here.

*The TPS does not operate on Flinders until the Draft LPS is approved.

*Representations cannot be made on the State Planning Provisions, as these are state mandated provisions developed by the Tasmanian Government.

Draft Flinders Local Provisions Schedule

The Draft LPS will be the new planning scheme that applies to the Flinders Municipality, once it is formally approved. The Draft LPS will control how land in our Municipality can be used and developed. It contains;

  • Particular Purpose Zones;
  • Specific Area Plans – maps and associated local provisions;
  • Site Specific Qualifications;
  • Code overlay maps and the associated State Planning Provisions for each overlay;
  • Code lists.
