Gosford Council is encouraging the community to take advantage of its online planning tool.
Council’s e-planning portal allows residents, businesses, developers and any other interested community members to track the progress of development applications as well as conduct property searches and make planning enquiries 24 hours a day.
Director of governance and planning, Ms Danielle Dickson said e-planning has proven very popular since its launch in 2014 and offers the community with simpler, quicker and more transparent access to information.
“We know our community is keen to find out more about local property planning and development, and this onestop online service gives anyone the flexibility to get the information they need,” Ms Dickson said.
“Simple and easy to navigate, the e-planning portal lets our customers view up to date development activity across Gosford City as well as relevant laws, land zoning and local environment plans.
“It also informs customers about what types of developments, activities and uses are allowed on a certain property or what planning controls must be met, all without having to contact Council.”
Online lodgment of development applications via the e-planning portal are expected to become available later this financial year.
