On the 19 October 2013, the Circular Head Interim Planning Scheme 2013 was declared. This replaced the Circular Head s.46 Planning Scheme No. 1, 1995.
Valid applications accepted prior to 19 October 2013 will be assessed under the former planning scheme. All new applications are required to address the requirements of the Circular Head Interim Planning Scheme 2013. This is a unique situation where the interim planning scheme applies, whilst at the same time is subject to review and representations. Please see www.circularhead.tas.gov.au/ips for more information.
The Circular Head Interim Planning Scheme 2013 has allocated land into 17 different zones in compliance with the State Planning Directive (no 1).
The land use zone assigns the purpose for which land is to be put. From this purpose there will be use classes for which the use may be permitted, permitted with permit or discretionary. A permit application may also become discretionary if it relies on a performance criteria in one of the development standards or codes.
