The Planning Reform Unit has released a draft Bill to amend the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 to include a process for making and amending a new type of planning instrument, to be known as Tasmanian Planning Policies.
These Policies are designed to provide strategic guidance on statewide planning issues, to inform the 5-year reviews of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme, and to assist in the development of regional transport, infrastructure and settlement policies. A draft suite of Tasmanian Planning Policies has also been released.
