Planning applications are moving to the NSW Planning Portal
Maitland is one of the first councils to start using the NSW Planning Portal, which will soon be mandatory for all councils across the state.
All planning applications will need to be lodged through the NSW State Government Portal from 31 December 2020.
The new Portal will give more control and transparency to users over their planning applications.
The Portal will accept the lodgement of certain planning applications, in particular, development applications including modifications.
The Portal is operational right now, so you can jump on to lodge and track your development application online or have a look. You will need to register a secure login to access the Portal before you begin.
Visit planningportal.nsw.gov.au to access the Portal and find out more.
