Attach title information
You must provide a current Certificate of Title or Title Search (which is no older than 30 days) . You must also provide a copy of any registered restrictive covenants that affect the land. If a registered restrictive covenant does apply, talk to a planning officer about what to do next.
It may also be a good idea to include a cover letter, explaining what you propose to do in a little more detail. If you are unsure as to what other documentation may be required, access the checklists above or contact Council’s Statutory Planning Team.
