The Tasmanian Planning Scheme

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS) will apply across the whole State. It will replace the current planning schemes that operate in each Council area. The TPS is made up of the State Planning Provisions and a Local Provisions Schedule for each council area.

Tasmanian Planning Scheme Fact Sheet


State Planning Provisions

The State Planning Provisions (SSP's) were made by the Minister in February 2017 with minor amendments in April 2018. The SPP’s set out the way 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 SPP’s also include planning rules in codes, relating to matters that occur across various zones. The intent of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme is to achieve as much consistency as possible in the planning rules that apply across the State.
