Planning approvals

About planning and building applications

Land use planning and building control at Hobart Airport is regulated by the Airports Act 1996. The Act requires that all building approvals for construction activity on Hobart Airport land are issued under Commonwealth law.

If you’re planning on making changes to your existing site or tenancy, or embarking on a new development at Hobart Airport, you will need to gain approval from both Hobart Airport (as the Airport Lessee Company) and the Airport Building Controller (ABC) prior to commencing any work. .

The process considers the interests of the airport’s operations and business partners, and works with the ABC and Airport Environmental Officer (AEO) to ensure each application compliments the ongoing development and operations of Hobart Airport.

Airport Building Control Regulations 2.04A and 2.04B require that information on the following building applications and building/planning determinations is published:

  • building applications that have been/are to be lodged with the ABC for approval
  • airport lessee consents or refusals that have been issued by Hobart Airport for proposed building activities
  • building approvals or refusals that have been issued by the ABC
  • withdrawals of applications
