Council provides plans and reports for building and plumbing applications that have been submitted to Council for most properties.
Authorised persons can request copies of files/reports from these records to assist them with renovating, alterations, commercial fit outs, placing a new structure or to provide finalisation proof for fire regulations.
To request plans, complete the online form or submit a Building plumbing records request application(PDF, 663KB) and pay the relevant fee. Searches will be emailed within 20 business days
You may need to provide proof of ownership, letter from the property owner or if you are purchasing the property, a copy of the signed Contract of Sale. Fees charged are for the search of Council records and are payable whether information is retrievable or not. Consequently, there will be no refunds in the event the search was not successful. There is a disclaimer on the form which must be signed.
Building Envelope plans can be located using DA Tracker. If you are unable to locate the information via DA Tracker, contact Council on (07) 3205 0555.
Fees are charged primarily for the time taken to search council records and to a much lesser degree to provide a copy of the requested item. Consequently, there will be no refunds in the event the search was not successful or withdrawn prior to completion.
Private building certifiers requesting copies of plans, infrastructure information and documents applicable to a property must complete a Private certifier - request for building information application (Form 19).
