Apply for development document copies


Development details and documents associated with recent applications are available through Application Tracker.

It is the responsibility of the property owner or applicant to confirm that the development or other associated approval located on the Application Tracker tool remains active and valid. 

In many cases, development documents for applications lodged with Council from 2014 onwards, are held in digital format and are available free of charge online.

Older documents are often in paper form and held in Council’s off-site archive stores. These search requests can take longer to complete, and additional fees may apply in accordance with GIPA provisions. Refer to Council’s 2023/24 Fees and Charges(PDF, 3MB).

How to request historical information or a certificate
