Subdivision Certificates

A Subdivision Certificate is required for Council’s endorsement of a subdivision plan prior to registration with the NSW Land Registry Services. A Subdivision Certificate should only be submitted after a developer has fulfilled all conditions of the development consent. The certificate is to be accompanied by the original plan of subdivision including administration sheet and four copies, an 88b instrument (if applicable) and the appropriate application fee.

For more information, refer to Council’s Fact Sheet – Guide to Subdividing Land below.


A Subdivision Certificate Application must be submitted through the NSW Planning Portal.  Once submitted in the NSW Planning Portal, Council will undertake a preliminary check to see if all the information required for the application has been uploaded into the NSW Planning Portal.  Council will then contact you to provide additional information (if required) and pay the relevant application fees.

Council is unable to accept an application by traditional methods (e.g. in person, via e-mail or via post).  A hard copy of the subdivision documents may be provided to Council for signing after the application has been accepted by Council in the NSW Planning Portal.
