Section 10.7 Planning Certificate Application

A Section 10.7 (s10.7) Planning Certificate is a certificate issued by Council under the provisions of Section 10.7 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

This certificate provides information on how the land may be used and restrictions on its development.

A s10.7 Certificate can only be issued on a lot that has been registered and is only legally correct as of the day of processing.

A Section 10.7 Certificate has two (2) parts

You can request a part Certificate - s10.7(2), or a full Certificate - s10.7(2) & (5).

It is highly recommended that a full certificate (part (2) and part (5)) be obtained when purchasing land. 

A S10.7(2) Certificate provides information as required in the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulations 2000. A s10.7(2) Certificate must legally be attached to a contract for the sale of the land.

A S10.7(5) Certificate provides a broader range of information relevant to the land and additional advice including:

  • Exhibited draft Development Control Plan’s (DCPs)
  • Whether it is potentially contaminated land
  • Other planning matters considered relevant
