Tasmanian Planning Commission delivering a single online planning portal for Tasmania

Historically, development planning systems have been complex and difficult to navigate, with thousands of pages of planning rules across many different combinations of zones, overlays and land uses. This complexity creates undue delays, uncertainties, and inconsistencies.

The Tasmanian Government in Australia has committed to reforming the State's planning system to deliver a single statewide planning scheme that is faster, easier and simpler to use.

As the peak land use planning body in Tasmania, the Tasmanian Planning Commission (TPC) is responsible for delivering new online planning services for the Tasmanian community.

The Tasmanian Planning Schemes Online Project brings all of the planning information contained within the state, regional and local planning schemes together on a single website, using TechnologyOne’s ePlanning solution, PlanningXchange.

PlanningXchange enables homeowners, builders and investors to quickly and easily access reliable planning information online from participating councils by entering an address and selecting a development activity. PlanningXchange defines the level of assessment, the rules that apply and a clear path on what to do next, as well as the ability to track the status of your development application online, 24/7.

The online portal also allows councils and state government to generate application statistics in a timely and accurate manner.

“We were committed to transitioning planning processes from a paper based system to an accessible, user friendly and efficient online statewide planning system,” says Stewart Johnson, Director of Strategic Planning at the Tasmanian Planning Commission (TPC).

“We were looking for a way to streamline every step of the development planning process and improve statewide planning with consistent terminology, processes, systems and a single source of truth.”

“PlanningXchange is making the planning system more transparent and accessible for the Tasmanian community.”
