Classes of Information
The Department of Planning maintains files related to Planning and Building Control applications, as well as Policy Development records and Administration records. Most of these files are maintained in hard copy, although some recent applications may also contain electronic (PDF) files, such as building plans. FOI applicants are encouraged to state the Block and Parcel information for the subject parcel they are interested in prior to making an application, as this is one of the key ways we can search for a file.
