The primary role of the Department of Primary Industries and Water (DPIW) is to manage the State's resources - our air, land, water, plants and animals - so that all Tasmanians benefit. The Agency had a structure and name change on 5 April 2006. The Agency was previously known as the Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment. Planning functions have been transferred to the Department of Justice. The Resource Planning and Development Commission, the Resource Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal and the Planning Branch (previously in the Strategic Policy and Planning Division) moved to the Department of Justice. The Environment Division formed part of the new Department of Tourism, Arts and the Environment. In 2009 this department was restructured and became Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment.
