Huon Valley Council (acting as a Planning Authority) has initiated a combined permit and amendment to the Huon Valley Interim Planning Scheme 2015.

The Draft Amendment (PSA-1/2022) being initiated is to rezone land at 388 Scotts Road, Cairns Bay from Significant Agricultural to Rural Resource under the planning scheme.

The Draft Planning Permit (DA-14/2022) is for partial change of use of the property to Resource Development for a marine farming shore facility development on part of the property and works associated with the facility development to be carried out on part of the property.

As required under former Section 38 of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, a copy of the Draft Amendment and Draft Planning Permit will be placed on public exhibition for a 28-day period.

The Draft Amendment and Draft Planning Permit can be inspected at the council offices, 40 Main Street, Huonville, during normal office hours from 1 October 2022 until 31 October 2022, or at council’s website www.huonvalley.tas.gov.au

Any person may lodge a representation on the Draft Amendment and Draft Planning Permit within the exhibition period with the Planning Authority. Representations are to be made in writing to the general manager of the Huon Valley Council, 40 Main Street, Huonville 7109, or by email to hvc@huonvalley.tas.gov.au

In order for a representation to be considered it must:

  • be in writing
  • clearly identify the person or body who is making the representation
  • be signed and dated by that person
  • include proof of authority or nomination to make representation on behalf of said body (if an incorporated or non-incorporated body)
  • include contact details of the person making the representation
  • include facts and reasons to explain your support for, or opposition to, all or any part of the Section 43A Application-Draft Amendment (PSA-1/2022)(DA-14/2022)

Representations can be submitted by completing the form below and must include the author’s full name, contact number and postal address.

Once representations have been submitted, the council will consider the representations and report to the Tasmanian Planning Commission. The commission usually holds a hearing into representations, providing an opportunity for the commission to gain a better understanding about the amendment and draft permit before determining whether or not to approve the amendment and confirm or otherwise the draft permit.
