Planning File Search Request

***If you need a copy of your house plans, where no planning/development permit (e.g unit development) has been issued, please apply for a Building File Search Request***

Copies of Planning Permits, Plans and / or documentation may be available in most cases from approximately the late 1960's for properties within Knox.

However, in most cases we would advise that only Planning files from the early 1970’s be recalled as Council cannot guarantee that a planning file would be available.

Should we be unable to locate the documents requested, the fee is not refundable.

These requests generally take up to fifteen (15) working days to complete from when the request form & prescribed fee has been submitted to Council. However, more involved planning requests may take longer. Planning Fee Guidelines

Up to two permits and a copy of endorsed plan only per file. Any further permits will incur extra costs per permit. Council will assess this at the time of retrieving the permit file and we will advise you of any additional costs that may be applicable.

Applications can be submitted online. Payment via credit card is required when submitting your application. You need to be registered to use this online service.
