Planning Permit Request Form

If developing or purchasing a property you may want to see previous planning permits issued for the site. A planning permit is a legal document that allows a certain development or use over the site, and contains relevant conditions that must be met and a set of plans and/or documents.

You can apply to view previous planning permits issued for a site by completing a Planning Permit Request form(PDF, 40KB) and returning to us, but please note you must also provide the following:

  • proof of ownership or written permission from the owner/owners of the property
  • written permission from the current owner/owners of the property to obtain any permit or plans
  • verifying identification of the applicant wishing to view the plans
  • if authorised, a copy of plans can be purchased.


Please note a search fee is payable when an application for plans is submitted, even if a search returns no plans. This fee is currently $48.50.
