Section 149 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment (EP & A) Act 1979, requires that local councils, upon application, must issue a Planning Certificate providing information on the planning controls relating to any piece of land within the Council Area.
A person may require a Planning Certificate for many different reasons but generally a Certificate will be requested when a property is to be redeveloped or sold. Temora Shire Council issues two types of Planning Certificates a Section 149 (2) or Section 149 (5) Certificate.
There are two ways of applying for a Section 149 (2 and/or 5):
A S149(2) will provide information about: zoning of the land; relevant state; regional and local planning controls; details of any hazards such as bushfire; flooding or the like; heritage; potential contamination of the land; and any specified advice from other government agencies/authorities.
A S149(5) provides all the details of a S149(2) and additional advice on matters affecting the land which may include: site or area specific advice; mining lease areas; contaminated land; exhibited draft Development Control Plans; Section 94 Plans; etc.
While the Planning Certificate will state all the relevant planning instruments that apply to the property, it does not specify development standards except for minimum lot requirements for dwellings. If a development is being proposed, it will be necessary to research thoroughly, all of the development standards of the planning instruments which apply to the land.

Temora Shire includes the town of Temora, and villages of Ariah Park and Springdale, but outreaches to other small communities outside the Shire boundary. With a strong retail trade sector and an active business community, many visitors are surprised at the variety of shopping within the town.
