Planning Certificates provide information regarding the development potential of a parcel of land.
This information includes the plans, zones, complying development codes and other relevant matters.
Planning Certificates are typically required for the sale or redevelopment of a property.
Types of Planning Certificates
There are two types of Planning Certificates. Both are delivered by email.
- A Section 10.7(2) certificate identifies the following:
- Other planning considerations
- A Section 10.7(2) and 10.7(5) certificate provides the above, plus other information Council has chosen to add. This may include notices regarding:
- Pool safety
- Heritage and archaeology
- Information on land below the Mean High-Water Mark (MHWM)
- Unpaid development fees
- Land contamination
- Any other matters.
Once purchased, a 10.7(2) planning certificate cannot be upgraded to a 10.7(2) and 10.7(5) certificate. Please choose carefully.
A Planning Certificate can only apply to a single lot or parcel of land.
Planning Certificates cannot be issued for Crown land which has been leased or licensed for private use.
