Child Care Services
The Lady Gowrie Child Care Centre is centrally located in the Swansea township at 1 Arnol Street with the renowned Freycinet Hazards reflecting in the waters adjacent to the Centre.

Declared areas have been agreed to by Council and other public land managers throughout the municipality. The maps below show the locations where dogs are allowed off lead, on lead or are prohibited at different times throughout the year for the various places. Responsible dog management will ensure that these areas are enjoyed by everyone. Unfortunately, non compliance could lead to infringements being issued which is not our desired outcome.
National Resource Management
Natural resource management (NRM) is about the way in which people and natural landscapes interact.
The term ‘natural resources’ refers to a broad spectrum of our ‘environmental assets’. These include air, water, land, plants, animals and micro-organisms. Individual assets are not isolated, however: they are linked together to form natural systems of varying scale such as rivers, lakes and wetlands, estuaries and coasts, forests, fields, geological systems and resources, and mountains.
Natural resource management reflects these linkages within and between natural systems. It integrates the management of social, economic and environmental values by involving the community and industry in planning and decision making.
Planning Approval Process
One of Glamorgan Spring Bay Councils core responsibilities is to regulate the use and development of the land in its municipal area. The planning approval process regulates ‘use’ and ‘development’ of land by assessing proposals against the Glamorgan Spring Bay Interim Planning Scheme 2015.
View the Planning Scheme
The Glamorgan Spring Bay Interim Planning Scheme 2015 took effect on 5th August 2015 and can be accessed online through the iplan website by clicking here. If you have difficulties using iplan please review the iplan help page here.
A feature of iplan that is extremely useful is the online planning enquiry which can be assessed by clicking here. The enquiry will provide information on the zone of the property, and any overlays that apply as well as providing links to the scheme text and to www.thelist.tas.gov.au, which has a range of useful information.
