Advice and guidelines for lodging an application via the NSW Planning Portal.

From 1 July 2021, the following development related applications and post consent certificates must be lodged with Parkes Shire Council via the NSW Planning Portal:

  • Development Applications (DA)
  • Complying Development Certificates (CDC)
  • Construction Certificates (CC)
  • Occupation Certificates (OC)
  • Subdivision Certificates (SC)
  • Subdivision Works Certificates (SWC)
  • Appointment of Principal Certifying Authority (PCA)
  • Applications to modify a Development Application (DA) or a Certificate (CC, CDC)
  • Section 68 (Local Government Act) Applications

Whilst Council's assessment of development proposals will remain the same, applications will no longer be accepted over the counter or digitally via direct email.

Council is committed to helping our community members as they adjust to this change. For further information regarding this process, please contact our Planning & Community Services Department on 02 6861 2373 between 8:30am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.
