Modifications to Planning Directive No. 1

17 February 2016: Minor modifications to PD1 come into effect on 17 February 2016.

The Minister for Planning and Local Government has made minor modifications to Planning Directive No. 1 – The Format and Structure of Planning Schemes (PDF, 523.4 KB). This has arisen as a result of:

  • recent amendments to the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993
  • an inconsistency with Planning Directive Number 4.1 - Standards for Residential Development in the General Residential Zone, and
  • a conflict between clauses that were identified during hearings into the Hobart Interim Planning Scheme 2015.
