A 149 Certificate is a planning certificate under Section 149 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
Planning Certificates give information on the development potential of a parcel of land including the planning restrictions that apply to the land on the date the certificate is issued. There are two types of 149 planning certificates, 149/2 and 149/2&5.
What is the difference between a 149/2 and a 149/2&5 Certificate?
A 149/2 Certificate provides you with information such as zoning, whether and Draft Local Environmental Plans and Development Control Plans affect the land and whether any restrictions apply to the land due to natural hazards such as flooding and bushfire.
A 149/2&5 Certificate provides you with all of the above information and additional information.
Why do I need a 149 Certificate?
When land is bought or sold the Conveyancing Act 1919 requires a 149 Planning Certificate to be attached to the contract of sale. It may also help an existing owner to decide about the uses of their land.
Is there a fee involved?
Yes and you can find it on the application form located on the right.
