NSW Planning Portal Service Fees

The Department is introducing service fees for certain applications on the NSW Planning Portal. These fees, to be paid by the applicant during the application process, will support the ongoing maintenance and delivery of the NSW Planning Portal.

The Department has amended the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (the Regulation) to introduce a range of nominal fees for certain planning applications, certificates and payments that are to be 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 ongoing maintenance and delivery of the NSW Planning Portal and the related ePlanning Digital Services.

The Regulation amendment will come into effect from 1 July 2021.

The NSW Planning Portal Service Fees are as follows:

Payment process

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.
