Regional land-use planning is a relatively new
concept in Tasmania. At present no land-use plans are in
operation, though it is the intention of the new Labor
Government to legislate for a State Planning Authority
early in. 1973; regional planning forms part of the intended
planning process.
The process can be divided into primary, secondary
and tertiary stages. Primary planning consists of an ecological
inventory of the resources of a region and includes
information on climate, physiography, geology, pedology,
hydrology, vegetation and wildlife. The secondary stage is
one of evaluating the suitability of past and present uses
of the land. Tertiary planning involves the examination of
the region's suitability for various uses in relation to the
community's needs. Decisions are then reached, policies
formulated, and a plan developed which ensures the proper
management and conservation of all resources of the region
consistent with meeting the needs of the various sectors,
segments and individuals comprising the community. Plans
need to be updated at intervals as new information and
technology becomes available and community requirements change.
