Supporting businesses through red tape reduction

New legislation will take effect next week that will remove red tape and streamline the regulatory approvals process minimising the burden of unnecessary regulation on businesses and reduce delays to approval processes.

A common complaint by Tasmanians, whether they be building a house, a hotel or a manufacturing plant, is the time it takes to gain the necessary development approvals required from other utilities and other approval agencies.

The need to streamline the development processes is a vital tool for stimulating economic growth as we recover from the pandemic.
