The NSW Planning Portal is an online environment where community, industry and government can work together to better understand and meet their obligations under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
It hosts a range of digital planning services, mapping tools and reporting tools to assist everyone involved in a proposed development.
The digital services accessed via dashboards:
Set up under the Act, the NSW Planning Portal is also the legal repository for certain planning documents, such as Ministerial Orders.
The ePlanning Program is currently working with all NSW councils to encourage greater engagement with the services on the NSW Planning Portal.
For further information and guidance on the NSW planning system visit the Development, Assessment and Consent page on the NSW Planning Portal.
We welcome your feedback on changes that will transition from the use of PDF maps to ‘digital mapping’ as the legal map reference of environmental planning instruments (EPIs). This transition will save time and costs, reduce errors in EPIs and provide a central location for the EPIs through their preparation, consultation, submission, approval and publication lifecycle.
