The State Government has made it mandatory for the following types of development applications, building applications and certificates to Coonamble Shire Council to be submitted through the NSW Planning Portal:

By law, using the NSW Planning Portal will be the only legal way to make an application to Council. Any application, other than through the Planning Portal, is not able to be accepted.

Council encourages you to use the Portal for a more streamlined and efficient experience.

The NSW Planning Portal makes submitting applications to Council simple, with the convenience of its information and facilities being available to you online, anywhere and at any time.

Please familiarise yourself by reading the Frequently Asked Questions

Our commitment to customer service continues, and we encourage applicants to contact Council’s planning team on (02) 6827 1900 to be sure you have all inputs ready to submit to the Planning Portal for a streamlined approval process.

Additional information and advice on the NSW Planning Portal is available on the NSW Planning website
