Building File Search Request

Building files may be available from approximately 1970 onwards. Council cannot guarantee that a building file would be available and the fee for this service is non-refundable.

Payment is payable for each building file of the individual works (eg Dwelling, Addition, Garage, etc).

Building files can only be provided to the current owner of the property. A copy of a rates notice or drivers license will need to be submitted as proof of ownership. If you are not the current owner, written authorisation from the owner is required and a copy of a Section 32 / Contract Note signed by both parties (purchaser & vendor) will be required.

These requests approximately take up to fifteen (15) working days to process.

Please note: The documents will be emailed to you with a link to a share file that is valid for 6 months.

Hard copies will only be provided upon request.
