Information provided on certificates is only current for the day they are issued. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure they are applying for the correct certificate and that they have accurately identified the property the application relates to. 
Please review the summary section carefully before payment.

Please note the following before ordering a Planning Certificate:

  • A request for a 10.7(2) planning certificate cannot be upgraded to a 10.7(5) planning certificate.
  • A standard planning certificate cannot be upgraded to an urgent certificate. If you require a certificate urgently you should pay the urgency fee when you do your initial order.
  • Planning certificates are not issued for individual lots in a Strata Plan, rather they will be issued for the entire Strata Plan. That means that the certificate will not show a lot number. For example: if you order a certificate for Lot 10 Strata Plan 1234, 10/25 Smith Street, the information on the certificate will show Strata Plan 1234, 25 Smith Street.
  • Where multiple allotments of land are in one ownership, a separate certificate will be required for each individual parcel. For example: Lot 2 DP12345, 14 Jones Street and Lot 3 DP12345, 14 Jones Street will require two certificates to be ordered.
  • Council is not responsible for delays caused by incorrect details provided in applications or delays caused by telecommunications services.
  • Council will not provide refunds for incorrect property choice. Please ensure you carefully check all property details are correct before making payment for your section 10.7 planning certificate.
