Free planning assistance

Understanding and working with Tasmania’s planning and development approval system can sometimes feel overwhelming. It can also require money you just don’t have.

Our Planning Aid Service offers independent, professional planning advice for individuals and groups. Our qualified volunteer planners can help you understand the planning and development approval system, including giving you information and advice on how to prepare or lodge your own planning application, how to comment on development proposals and applications, or how to prepare for a formal hearing.

All our planners are members of the Planning Institute of Australia, so you can be confident that the information and advice you’ll receive is professional and current.

The Planning Aid Service is provided free of charge to people and groups who are unable to meet the cost of engaging a planning consultant.
