Meander Valley Planning Scheme

What is the Planning Scheme?

The Planning Scheme is a set of regulations that guide the use and development of land.

Most property development is assessed under the Planning Scheme. Some works of a minor nature are exempt from assessment.

Council currently operates under the Meander Valley Interim Planning Scheme 2013

Our transition to the Tasmanian Planning Scheme

From 2017, work began on the introduction of a planning scheme that would apply statewide. Once complete, the Tasmanian Planning Scheme will replace the Meander Valley Interim Planning Scheme 2013.

Draft Meander Valley Local Provisions Schedule

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made up of two components:
1. The State Planning Provisions
2. The Meander Valley Local Provisions Schedule

The Meander Valley Local Provisions Schedule relates to our specific Council area and allows for planning rules that cater for the unique qualities of Meander Valley.

In accordance with Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, a Draft Meander Valley Local Provisions Schedule was developed and advertised for public representations in 2018.
