Section 10.7 Planning Certificates

A section 10.7 Planning Certificate was previously known as a Section 149 Certificate. The Certificate will provide you with information regarding the development potential of a parcel of land. There are 2 types of Section 10.7 Planning Certificates.

Section 10.7(2) certificate shows the zoning of the property, its relevant state, regional and local planning controls and other property constraints such as land contamination, level of flooding and bushfire prone land.

Section 10.7(2) and 10.7(5) certificate provides the same information as above but also includes other factors such as advice from other authorities and certain information that Council holds on a property that is relevant to the land but is not disclosed in a Section 10.7(2) certificate.
