The department has amended the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2021 to introduce a range of nominal fees for certain planning applications, certificates and payments. These fees are paid by the applicant as part of the digital application process on the NSW Planning Portal.
These fees are different to the lodgement and assessment fees charged by councils and private certifiers. They have been introduced to support the maintenance and delivery of the NSW Planning Portal and the related NSW Planning Portal Digital Services.
The NSW Planning Portal Service Fees for the financial year of 2023/24 are as follows:
|Name of Service Fee||Amount|
|Modification of Development Consent Portal Fee||$43|
|Site Compatibility Certificate Portal Fee||$43|
|Construction Certificate Portal Fee||$43|
|Subdivision Works Certificate Portal Fee||$43|
|Occupation Certificate Portal Fee||$43|
|Subdivision Certificate Portal Fee||$43|
|Building Information Certificate Portal Fee||$43|
|Review of Determination of DA Portal Fee||$5|
|Lodgement of a Planning Agreement Portal Fee||$5|
|Application for a BASIX Certificate Portal Fee||$5|
Certificate Registration for:
|$5 for each certificate|
|Payment of Development Contributions Portal Fee||$5|
The department is developing payment functionality on each of the relevant ePlanning Digital Services to enable applicants to pay all relevant fees online at the point of lodgement.
Fees will be payable through the ServiceNSW payment gateway and may incur a surcharge depending on the payment method.
Once an application or certificate has been lodged or accepted an invoice will be automatically sent to the applicant. The applicant has five days to pay the invoice. This will not impact the processing time of the application.
