You must apply for a planning certificate to obtain information about an area of land. A planning certificate provides all the information the council has on file about planning controls and other issues that may affect a particular parcel of land.
There are two types of planning certificates:
- A section 10.7(2) certificate shows the zoning of the property, its relevant state, regional and local planning controls and other property issues such as land contamination and road widening.
- A section 10.7(2) and 10.7(5) certificate provides the same information but also includes advice from other authorities.
