In Tasmania the key Act for planning processes is the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993. It sets out the various requirements and timeframes that apply, for example, for making an application for a permit or requesting an amendment to a planning scheme.
The Act is supported by regulations. The regulations include requirements for notification and fees.
There may be other Acts that also apply depending on the assessment.

Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 (former provisions)
The Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993 has been amended to provide for the Tasmanian Planning Scheme. The Act amendments were effective on 17 December 2015.
Transitional arrangements mean the former provisions of the Act remain in force to allow for the consideration of amendments and combined permits and amendments to planning schemes and interim planning schemes. Where the former provisions are being relied upon, reference may be made to ‘the former provisions’.
