Section 10.7 Planning Certificates and Property Certificates

A 10.7 planning certificate (formerly​ called a 149 planning certificate) is an important document that outlines restrictions, controls and conditions on specified land.

All planning certificates are now available online. You can request, pay and receive all planning certificates online through Council's eServices.

Planning Certificates can take up to five working days to process. Urgent certificates can be processed within 24 hours (next business day), subject to an additional fee.

On 14 July 2021 the State Government made changes to flood prone land across NSW in response to serious flooding that has occurred in recent times. These changes require all Councils to alter what properties we identify as flood affected and to require councils to carefully consider impacts of development in low flood risk areas.

Please read Council’s Frequently Asked Questions if you would like more information regarding the changes.

If you have ordered and received a planning certificate prior to 14 July 2021 the flood information will not reflect the flood prone land changes that became effective on 14 July 2021. Any certificates finalised and issued by Council on or after 14 July 2021 will have the new flood prone land information.

If you would like your certificate to reflect the new flood prone land changes, a new planning certificate must be purchased on or after 14 July 2021.

Once the certificate has been generated, you will receive the certificate via email as a PDF.

You can use eServices to obtain the following certificates:
