Tasmanians want a sound, visionary Planning system
There is growing community dissatisfaction with the Tasmanian Government's approach to Planning and the statewide Planning Scheme law reforms which favour short-term ad hoc commercial development at the expense of community social and environmental values and our collective future well-being.
The Tasmanian Planning Information Network (TasPIN) vision is for a statewide Planning system delivering the best possible sustainable future for Tasmania's social, economic and environmental well-being.
TasPIN is focusing on acceptable solutions and best practice planning to ensure liveable, healthy and connected communities.
TasPIN is calling for:
- Sound, integrated, outcomes-focused strategic planning to guide the best possible sustainable future for Tasmania
- Planning processes that inform, inspire, involve, and are trusted by the community. Read more.
