S10.7 Planning Certificates

When buying or developing a property, it is important to find out about planning controls or hazards that may affect the land. Section 10.7 Planning Certificates contain specific information about planning controls and limitations that apply to the land which may affect how you can use the land. 

Types of Planning Certificates

There are two types, with the s10.7(5) being a comprehensive overview of the attributes that apply to a piece of land.

Basic s10.7 Planning Certificate - Part 2
Comprehensive s10.7 Planning Certificate - Part 2 & 5

A separate application is required for each individual lot/land parcel. Properties that cover multiple lots will require an application for each lot. The reason for this is that planning controls are applied to each individual lot and may differ for each lot within a property. Please check that you have accurately identified all land parcels for which you require a Planning Certificate. For strata title land where a certificate is required for the entire site, only one application is necessary.

Planning Certificate contains information correct on the date of issue. Planning controls can change; it is therefore recommended that you rely only on a recent certificate for accurate information.
