About the Planning Application Process

Planning affects all residents and property owners in relation to developing and using a property and Council as the Planning Authority administers this through the Tasman Interim Planning Scheme 2015.  An interactive version of the the planning scheme is available on the Tasmanian Planning Commission’s website:

www.iplan.tas.gov.au

Planning approval is required for most types of use and/or development.  This includes new dwellings and outbuildings, additions / extensions to existing structures as well as subdivisions and boundary adjustments.  The development and use of land falls into one of four categories:

1. Permitted – Council has to approve the development but it can impose such conditions it deems necessary having regard to the matters Council may take into consideration. (e.g. the Scheme)

2. Discretionary – Council may approve or refuse (with reasons) the application and with any approval it may impose such conditions it deems necessary having regard to the matters Council may take into consideration. (e.g. the Scheme)

3. Prohibited – Council shall refuse the application.

4. No Permit Required– No planning permit is required.

‘Permitted’ Planning Applications do not require any public advertising. ‘Discretionary’ Planning Applications require a 2 week advertising period and are advertised in the Local Government Section of The Mercury newspaper.  A site notice is also placed on the land and letters are sent to adjoining property owners. Any resident or property owner also has the right of input into Council’s deliberations by making representation when a development is advertised. If you do not agree with a decision which Council issues you can lodge an appeal with the Resource Management and Planning Tribunal.
