Section 149 Certificate
Under Section 149 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act), a local council will, upon application, issue a certificate providing information about planning controls or property affectations relating to any piece of land within the council area.
A certificate issued under Section149(2) provides information about the zoning of the property, the relevant state, regional and local planning controls and other property affectations such as land contamination and road widening. Please note: 149 Certificates are generated on the parent property only, not on individual lot numbers.
A certificate issued under Sections 149(2) and 149(5) provides both the information available in a Section 149 (2) certificate and additional information such as advice from other authorities, subdivision history, easements where Council has information available, access to Council’s Parking Permit Schemes.
