Understanding the effect of visitation on our economy
In order to understand the effect that the mountain bike trails are having on our business community, we send out a survey twice a year.
The survey allows us to then compile, collate and compare data.
This information is not just helpful to us in terms of understanding growth and gaps in the business community but we can also send individualised reports to businesses if requested.
If you are a business owner in Break O’Day we would encourage you to take part in this survey.

Tasmanian Planning Scheme Structure & Process
The Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS) will apply across the whole of the State and will replace the current planning schemes that operate in each Council area.
The TPS is made up of two parts:
- The State Planning Provisions (SPPs) and
- The Draft Break O’Day Local Provisions Schedule (LPS)
The SPPs set out the way the planning scheme will operate, the type of zones that can be applied to land and the planning rules for use and development within each zone. They also include Codes that relate to specific matters, or example; landslip, car parking or protection of natural values.
The Draft Break O’Day LPS is made up of:
- Zone Maps
- Code Overlay Maps
- Specific Area Plans (SAPs)
- Site Specific Qualifications (SSQs)
The SPPs went through a statutory process in 2016 with the content open for public submissions that were considered by a panel of the Tasmanian Planning Commission. The Minister for Planning approved the SPPs in February 2017.
The Break O’Day Council, in its capacity as the Planning Authority, reviewed the draft LPS at the March 2020 Council meeting and lodged the Draft LPS with the commission.
The flow chart below outlines the process undertaken by the Council to date and the remaining steps to consider. We are currently at the green step.
