The NSW Planning Portal is a digital platform used to lodge planning applications. The platform is already being used by a number of councils across NSW.  Hardcopy applications and documents emailed to Council will no longer be accepted after 28 June 2021.

  • Complying Development Certificates
  • Occupation Certificates
  • Section 68 Applications
  • Section 138 Applications

The customer will be kept informed during the assessment process through to determination via the NSW Planning Portal

Information about development proposals and their assessment will also remain available to the community through Council’s DAs online portal
