Public Exhibition of the
King Island draft Local Provisions Schedule (KILPS)
The Tasmanian Planning Commission has issued a notice under Section 35B of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, directing the King Island Council to exhibit the King Island draft Local Provisions Schedule (KIC-LPS). Representations are invited on the KIC-LPS.
The draft KILPS is the local component of the Tasmanian Planning Scheme (TPS) and will apply to the King Island municipality. The Draft KILPS is on public exhibition and open for comment from 28 October 2023 to 12 January 2024.
King Island draft Local Provisions Schedule
King Island Council endorsed the contents of the draft KILPS at a special meeting of 4 October 2022. The Tasmanian Planning Commission then conducted a review to ensure that it met all requirements of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993. The Commission has confirmed that the draft KILPS can be exhibited.
In short, the KILPS contains:
- Written document, includes objectives and the overriding provisions of the SPPs and tables;
- Zone maps identifying where SPPs zones apply to the council area; and
- Overlay maps and tables applicable to each code of the SPPs.
The KILPS sets out how land can be used on the island.

What happens when I make a comment on the King Island Local Provisions Schedule?
Once public exhibition closes, Council has 60 days to consider any representations, although more time may be allowed by the Tasmanian Planning Commission.
After exhibition the Council must consider each representation and recommend if the KILPS should be changed in response to a representation.
A report to the Tasmanian Planning Commission (the Commission) on the representations will be prepared by the Council and will be considered at a Council meeting.
Once the report is endorsed by the Council, it is provided to the Commission.
The Commission will advise when public hearings will be held. The Commission at the hearings will consider the representations received before deciding whether to recommend to the Minister to approve the KILPS.
If you made representation, you will be provided with the opportunity to appear before the Commission. The hearing will be most likely held on King Island
If the Minister for Planning approves the KILPS, the TPS will come into operation and will replace the current King Island Interim Planning Scheme 2013.
