A hearing into a proposed subdivision and rezone on the East Coast will take place later this month.
At it's April meeting, the Break O'Day Council voted to submit its report to the Tasmanian Planning Commission into a 54-lot subdivision and planning scheme amendment for 50 St Helens Point Road.
The amendment would change the land's zoning from environmental living to rural living to allow the land to be subdivided.
The rezoning and draft amendment has been a contentious issue in the municipality, with many representations against the proposal and some councillors voicing their concerns.
Groups against the proposal included Friends of the East Coast, NRM North, Seymour Community Action Group, and the North East Bioregional Network.
Councillors Janet Drummond, Lesa Whittaker, and Kylie Wright voted against the proposal at the council's meeting in April.
A preliminary assessment of the draft amendment by the commission identified some issues to be clarified at the hearing.
Discussions are likely to include whether the amendment is in accordance with the State Coastal Policy, the natural values of the land, the strategic basis for the rezoning, conditions of the draft permit, and any other matters arising from representations deemed that are relevant.
The hearing has been scheduled for June 25, and June 26 if required. It will take place from 10am at the Break O'Day Council Chambers at St Helens.
