E-planning forms in a single click

E-planning forms in a single click The City of Canterbury Bankstown has gone digital to make it easier for mums and dads to access planning and building forms online. No e-planning forms bankstown canterbury council development applications  

​​The City of Canterbury Bankstown has gone digital to make it easier for mums and dads to access planning and building forms online.

Administrator, Richard Colley, said Council this week launched its e-planning user-friendly forms, a checklist, information sheets and an application guide, to assist applicants and developers on how to lodge a planning and building application.

“These forms and the application checklist have been designed to be consistent, concise, clear, straightforward, simple and, above all, easy to use and understand,” Mr Colley said.

“The handy part about these forms is they’re interactive and can be filled out online to assist applicants with the option to file all documents electronically.

“Everything you need to know about submitting DAs, as well as complying development certificates and construction certificates, can now be found in one place and, better yet, people can tick each task off as they are completed.

“The aim of these simplified forms is to guide not only developers, but mums and dads wanting to build a granny flat or wanting to install a pool.”

Council’s new Planning and Building Guide is a three step process to help get construction work approved and on track.

“The first step is checking Council’s controls and policies, the second step is preparing plans and drawings, and the third step is completing the application form and lodging the application,” Mr Colley said.

Council has taken significant steps in developing a coordinated and simplified planning process for the whole city, including:

  • ​Having planners and building surveyors available at both Customer Service Centres;
  • ​​Offering a web-based advisory service addressing enquiries about planning and building approvals;
  • ​Giving residents and builders the ability to lodge development applications at either Customer Service Centre; and
  • ​Giving Canterbury residents the ability to follow the progress of developments online.

All relevant forms are now available at cb​​.city/developmentguide
