This area of work will be updated in 2022, following the separation of the EPA from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania (formerly DPIPWE) to make the EPA a standalone State Authority.
The key priorities and functions of the EPA will be outlined in a new EPA Strategic Plan, which will encompass the responsibilities of the Director and Board, and the support provided by staff. It will also incorporate contemporary Ministerial expectations for the EPA and commitments of the EPA Board to meet those expectations.
The EPA's first Strategic Plan in 2009 was a Plan to establish the new statutory body in the Tasmania community, while the Strategic Plan in 2012 clarified the legislative framework under which the EPA operates, and sets out its purpose, values, priorities, scope and approach.
The latest 2016-19 Strategic Plan focused on the close working relationship between the Board, Director and staff of the EPA, and identified the key priorities for the EPA as a whole over the three-year timeframe of the Plan.
