NSW Planning Portal

If your application is incomplete, you'll receive details from Council’s assessment officer regarding additional information required.

Once your application is complete and accepted for lodgement on the NSW Planning Portal, Council will contact you for payment of fees. Your application will not be considered as lodged until the application fees have been paid.

If the application involves integrated development, this fee is paid via the NSW Planning Portal directly to the external agency. This fee will not be requested until the concurrence/referral is actioned from Council.

Should you not have access to a computer to lodge an application, Council has a self-serve kiosk that you are able to use.  Further, staff are available to assist you with the process of submitting your application.
