Interim Planning Scheme
The Waratah-Wynyard Interim Planning Scheme has been declared for the municipal area and is effective from Saturday 19 October 2013.
Interim Planning Schemes for all nine municipal areas in the Cradle Coast region have been declared by the Minister for Planning as part of a regional package. The region’s Councils have been working together to deliver consistent planning schemes based on the same Regional Land Use Strategy. You can find out more about the region’s role in the state-wide planning reforms on the Cradle Coast Authority website.
The Waratah-Wynyard Interim Planning Scheme was available from 19 October 2013 for community consideration and written comment for a period of two months until 20 December 2013. Council will now review the submissions and provide a response on each issue to the Tasmanian Planning Commission (TPC) within four months of the public exhibition period (20 April 2014).
The TPC will then hold a hearing to consider each representation. The timeframes of the hearings are to be advised.
