The Tasmanian Government has started the tender process for the Planning and Building Portal project, which aims to streamline development.
The project is an online portal that aims to make it easier for Tasmanians to access information about property and apply for building permits.
It aims to deliver a single statewide system that will integrate planning, building and other related approvals.
The State Government said the project will make it easier and faster for Tasmanians by reducing red tape and streamlining building processes.

- Construction stats for 2018 released
Features include; online access to information and regulatory requirements, online application lodgement and an application tracking service.
These will allow owners and agents to lodge their own applications or documents and keep track of them from lodgement to determination.
The Australian and State Governments have committed over $9 million to the project, which is due to be completed by 2021.
The tender process will close on the 29th of May 2019.
Delivery of the project is expected to result in considerable savings in both time and resources for anyone involved in the building and construction industry in Tasmania.
