Tasmanian Planning Scheme - Brighton Draft Local Provisions Schedule

Tasmanian Planning Scheme - Brighton Draft Local Provisions Schedule


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 (SPP’s) and a Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) for each council area.


A fact sheet outlining the structure and process of the TPS is attached here:

Tasmanian Planning Scheme Fact Sheet

or for further information visit the State Government's planning reform website here.



The SPP’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 TPS is to achieve as much consistency as possible in the planning rules that apply across the State.


The SPP’s are attached here:

State Planning Provisions



The LPS requirements are set out in the SPP’s and are part of the legislated framework.
