ATS Authoring is the drafting element of the Amendment Tracking System (ATS) and allows planning authorities such as councils to draft planning scheme amendments online.
Through ATS, councils can already lodge, track and pay for planning schemes. The introduction of the drafting function is the final piece of the ATS jigsaw.
ATS Authoring Rollout
Planning schemes are being migrated via a monthly rollout beginning with regional groups of planning schemes. The new format planning scheme implemented by a planning scheme amendment. The migration started in October 2018 and is proposed to run until mid-2019.
Our handy map below shows the status of the rollout for each planning scheme (PDF, 42.4 KB). We’ll be updating it every month.
Each migration will move the planning scheme into a digital database. While rollouts are still in progress, planning schemes will continue to be produced in a PDF format. From July 2019, after all planning schemes have been migrated, they will also be available in HTML form on the website.
