Planning and Building Process

The NSW Planning Portal (Portal) is an online environment that has been developed by NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) 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 Portal aims to, improve application determination times, increase transparency of the planning system, and ensure greater accountability of all stakeholders.
