PlanBuild Tasmania Go-live 1 announcement

The Minister for Workplace Safety and Consumer Affairs, Hon Elise Archer MP announced on Thursday 24th February 2022 a new online portal to improve the property development approval process. PlanBuild Tasmania provides a streamlined, easier process for all Tasmanians looking to build has officially launched.

The PlanBuild Tasmania portal allows anyone to enter an address and see what planning zones and codes apply to their property in Tasmania. A Property Report can be generated which includes maps, details of the planning zone, codes and other information that affect the selected property.

For those properties that fall under the Tasmanian Planning Scheme, PlanBuild Tasmania provides a comprehensive Guided Enquiry service, including identifying planning, building and plumbing rules that may apply to a proposed project.

People will be able to work through a series of questions on their proposed project resulting in information on:

  • who to consult (e.g. local council, Heritage Tasmania)
  • who can do the work (e.g. a licensed builder)
  • what to apply for (e.g. a permit).

After completing an enquiry if the person has additional questions or wants to request advice from a council, this can be lodged online using PlanBuild Tasmania.

Phase two will be launched later in 2022, which will deliver application lodgement and tracking functionality.
