The STCA is the management body for the Southern Tasmanian Regional Planning Project (STRPP).
This initiative is the result of an agreement between the State Government, the STCA and the 12 southern Tasmanian Councils and aims to achieve the following outcomes:
- A comprehensive regional land use strategy for the region.
- An infrastructure investment strategy for the region.
- The development of coordinated, consistent and contemporary planning schemes for all councils involved, based on the common strategy.
These project outcomes will significantly influence the way the Southern region develops over the next 20 years and beyond and will greatly assist those who interact with the planning scheme in the future.
For a more complete overview of the project see: Overview and Rationale
Public Consultation — August 10–23 2013
The 12 Southern Tasmanian Councils are proposing to undertake a number of amendments to the Southern Tasmania Regional Land Use Strategy 2010-2035 and are now seeking public comments on the proposed amendments.
The Regional Land Use Strategy forms an important part of the strategic foundation of the new planning schemes currently being prepared by the Southern Councils.
The consultation period will run from August 10-23, during which time interested members of the public are invited to view the proposed amendments and provide comments on them.
Following the consultation period, the Councils — through the Southern Tasmania Regional Planning Project — will take into consideration the comments received and subsequently prepare a draft amended Regional Land Use Strategy for submission to the Minister for Planning for consideration.
