Checklists, Templates and Examples


Prior to lodging your planning permit application with Council, it is recommended that you review your application by using one of Council’s checklists. These checklists allow you to determine if you have provided the correct and necessary information. However, the checklists are only a general guide.

Council may request further information once your application is lodged.  Council may still send you an insufficient information letter or a further information request after your planning permit application is lodged.


Section 173 Agreements

A Section 173 Agreement will generally be a requirement of a condition placed on your planning permit. Not all planning permits require one, but you will need to read your conditions carefully and act on it if there is a requirement to do so.

A Section 173 Agreement is a legal contract made between Council and any other party or parties, under Section 173 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987. There are a number of requirements set by Council and the Title Registration Service that you, as the landowner, need to meet when entering into a Section 173 Agreement.
