UPDATE – Draft Amendments to the Break O’Day LPS

The exhibition period for the draft amendments to the Break O’Day Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) has now concluded. Council will now consider any representations made and provide a report to the Tasmanian Planning Commission in accordance with Section 40K of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1994.

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme

The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is made up of two components:

  1. The State Planning Provisions (SPPs) – found here.
  2. The Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) – found here.

The intent of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme is to achieve as much consistency as possible in the planning rules that apply across the State. State wide planning reform required all local government areas to develop a Local Provisions Schedule (LPS), which with the State Planning Provisions (SPP), forms the Tasmanian Planning Scheme.

State Planning Provisions

The State Planning Provisions have been approved by the Minister for Planning. You can view the provisions at the planning reform website here.

Break O’Day Local Provisions Schedule

The Break O’Day Local Provisions Schedule (LPS) relates to our specific Council area and allows for planning rules that cater to the unique qualities of Break O’Day. You can find the Break O’Day LPS here.

This means the Tasmanian Planning Scheme and the Break O’Day Local Provisions Schedule will be used to assess and decide applications validly made from 21 July 2023.
