The Tasmanian Planning Commission has powers under the Tasmanian Planning Commission Act 1997 to hold hearings.
While the majority of the Commission’s hearings are associated with planning schemes and planning scheme amendments, hearings may also be held for other purposes, such as management plan reviews, when assessing major development proposals or inquiries into the future use of public land.
Hearings enable the Commission to gather additional relevant information about the matter under consideration in an open and fair manner.
