No permit required for granny flats and studios Tasmania

‘No permit required’ approvals for granny flats and studios, Tasmania

  • Streamlined ‘no permit required’ approvals to construct ancillary dwellings, such as granny flats or self-contained studios.
  • The first 250 new ancillary dwellings will receive $10,000.

The Tasmanian Government will develop a broader housing policy framework that looks at the full array of housing market issues across the public and private sector to drive solutions, in line with PESRAC’s recommendations.

Although over the past year Tasmania had been building houses at a rate not seen in nearly a decade, Minister for Housing Roger Jaensch said more needs to be done.

In the media release ‘Comprehensive package to increase housing supply statewide’ Tasmanian Housing Minister Roger Jaensch said that the government will be providing a streamlined ‘no permit required’ approvals pathway for landowners to construct ancillary dwellings, such as granny flats or self-contained studios, on their existing properties.

“And to help meet the demand for rental properties, the first 250 new ancillary dwellings that are made available for long-term rental for more than two years will receive $10,000.” – Minister Jaensch said.
