The Tasmanian Government is undertaking the most significant planning reforms in the State's history.

This is delivering greater consistency, certainty and clarity for investors and developers

The Government is implementing reforms for all types of development from residential through to larger developments under new local government planning schemes based on the standardised State-wide template.

New planning schemes for councils build on work that has been done to introduce a new residential building code and regional land use strategies.

The Government has committed $6 million to ensure planning laws keep pace with the needs of local communities and potential investors.

Planning reform is a key priority of the Government because we want Tasmania to be a more attractive place to live and invest.
