Regional land use strategies
Regional Land Use Strategies set out the long term planning goals for the three Tasmanian regions (North West, Northern, and Southern regions). For example, a Regional Land Use Strategy may indicate how much land should be made available for industrial development in the region.
Planning schemes must be consistent with the relevant Regional Land Use Strategy.
Regional Land Use Strategies can be amended but it is the Minister’s responsibility to keep the three strategies under regular review.
The Minister for Planning and Local Government has declared regional strategies for the following three regions:
- North West (also referred to as Cradle Coast) includes the council areas: Burnie City, Central Coast, Circular Head, Devonport City, Kentish, King Island, Latrobe, Waratah-Wynyard, and West Coast.
- Northern includes the council areas: Break O'Day, Dorset, Flinders, George Town, Launceston City, Meander Valley, Northern Midlands, and West Tamar.
- Southern includes the council areas: Brighton, Central Highlands, Clarence City, Derwent Valley, Glamorgan Spring Bay, Glenorchy City, Hobart City, Huon Valley, Kingborough, Sorell, Southern Midlands and Tasman.
