You can also apply for a planning certificate online. You need to supply your contact details, or your login identification (if you are a registered user), information about the property or properties in question, and your credit card details for the purchase of certificates.
Some councils may require you to apply for this Certificate through the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD). These Certificates can be obtained online using LANDATA Titles, Property Certificates and Crown Land Status Reports.
You may also wish to supply an electronic copy of plans relevant to your enquiry.
