Copies of planning permits and endorsed plans are available on request. To obtain a copy of a plan or permit, complete the online form.
Information and fees
To obtain a copy of a plan or permit, you must be, or have written consent from either:
- the current owner
- the draftsperson
- the original applicant
Your application must be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee. The fee covers searching of Council records and administrative charges, but does not guarantee that Council is able to locate/provide copies of documents as requested.
Not all developments require a planning permit, so there may not be endorsed plans available.
