The Burnie Interim Planning Scheme 2013 details the types of use and development that are permitted, discretionary, prohibited or exempt from planning approval within each zone.
Permitted applications are allowable under the planning scheme and for which council Planning Authority must issue a Planning Permit with or without conditions attached.
Any person has a right to object to a discretionary application during a 14 day public advertising period.
Public notification methods that occur include:
- Sending a written notice to all adjoining owners and occupiers;
- Displaying a notice at the boundary of the land;
- Placing an advertisement in The Advocate newspaper; and
- Making the application available for inspection at Council’s office.
- Some details of the application can also be viewed on the Council's website.
After the advertising period, and consideration of any submissions, the Council Planning Authority may either approve a discretionary application with conditions, or refuse the application.
