The Tasmanian Planning Commission will be reviewed and a new chief will be sought.
The state government will advertise on Saturday for an experienced consultant to review the commission's structure.
"The purpose of the review is to ensure that the structure, functions and powers are appropriate to allow the commission to continue to perform its role as an independent decision maker and advisory body when the new planning reforms are finalised," Planning Minister Roger Jaensch said.
Expressions of interest for someone to be the commission's new chairperson and executive commissioner will also be advertised for on Saturday..
They would replace Greg Alomes, who was appointed as King Island Council general manager earlier this year.
Mr Jaensch said the appointment would be for two years while the review was undertaken.
"I wish to thank the previous executive commissioner, Mr Alomes, for his many years of service to the community," Mr Jaensch said.
