We are writing to let you know that the Glenorchy Planning Authority resolved to prepare two Planning Scheme Amendments PLAM-22/04 and PLAM-22/10 on 20 March 2023. The draft amendments seek to introduce new specific area plans called the Principal Activity Centre Specific Area Plan (PAC SAP) and the Northern Apartments Corridor Specific Area Plan (NAC SAP) for inclusion in the Glenorchy Local Provisions Schedule.

We invite you (and your members) to review the draft amendments and provide feedback. The draft amendments are on public exhibition from 30 March 2023 to 01 May 2023.

PLAM-22/04, the PAC SAP, will apply to the Glenorchy CBD (our principal activity centre) and seeks to enliven the activity centre by updating the existing urban design standards in the planning scheme and introducing new measures to protect the centre’s key assets, while encouraging high quality development, including for apartments.  You can see more information on the project here: https://letstalk.gcc.tas.gov.au/plam-22-04-pac-sap (Strategic Planner handling this amendment is Angela Dionysopoulos).

PLAM-22/10, the NAC SAP, will apply to the Commercial Zone along Main Road between Moonah and Montrose and seeks to allow residential use as medium to high density apartments to be built above or behind ground floor shops and businesses in the zone. You can see more about the project here: https://letstalk.gcc.tas.gov.au/plam-22-10 (Strategic Planner handling this amendment is Darshini Bangaru).

Formal notices are attached to this email, which provides details on how to submit a representation.
