Southern Tasmania Regional Land Use Strategy

Planning for our Future

The Southern Tasmania Regional Land Use Strategy is intended to be a broad policy document that will facilitate and manage change, growth and development within Southern Tasmania over the next 25 years.

The Strategy is comprised of three key components:

  • The Vision
  • The Strategic Directions
  • The Regional Policies (including some specific spatial strategies)

Whilst the Strategy arises from a joint initiative between State and Local government (the Southern Tasmania Regional Planning Project), it is intended that the Strategy be a permanent feature of the planning system: monitored, maintained and reviewed into the future.

The Strategy has now been declared by the Minister for Planning pursuant to Section 30C of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, following its endorsement by the 12 Southern Councils and Southern Tasmanian Councils Authority in June 2011.

A copy of the Regional Land Use Strategy is available here.

The Process Forward

Long term success of the Regional Land Use Strategy (the Strategy) is dependent on the details of implementation and governance arrangements.

While future governance arrangement for regional planning into the future are yet to be established by the Tasmanian Government, an Implementation Report has been prepared to support the Regional Land Use Strategy.

Implementation of the Strategy is to be guided by this document. While there is particular emphasis on delivering the Strategy through new consistent and contemporary planning schemes, it is also recognised that successful implementation of the Strategy will rely upon a range of actions and mechanisms.

An amended Strategy has now been declared by the Minister for Planning pursuant to Section 30C of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, following its endorsement by the Southern Tasmanian Councils Authority.
