From July 1 2021, Temora Shire Council is required to provide all of its planning services online. This is a requirement of all Councils by the NSW Government.
Council is committed to making this transition from a paper based applications to an online applications as simple and easy as possible for our community.
The new system has the advantage that an online environment allows people to access planning services and information from anywhere at any time. This is a convenient alternative to paper-based transactions that can only take place during business hours.
In order to use this service, you must register using a Service NSW account. Many residents will already have an account through other NSW Government programs.
The ePlanning program allows users to submit a Development Application (DA) online through the Planning Portal. Council's can review the DA and request and receive additional documents before making a determination.
