Please note: Delays to Processing of S149 Certificates

The processing of applications for section 149 certificates within Blakehurst and Kogarah Bay wards (formerly Kogarah Council LGA) received on and after 26 May 2017 may be delayed by several days as our system is updated to reflect the new provisions of the New City Plan amendment to Kogarah Local Environmental Plan 2012.

Council will be unable to process urgent certificates during the week commencing 29 May 2017. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience in this matter.

A Section 149 Certificate provides you with all the information Council has on file about planning controls that affect a specific piece of land.

The same information will be disclosed, as well as additional advice on the land where the information is available.

If you would like to develop a property, you may also need to refer to State Environmental Planning Policies (SEPP) or Regional Environmental Plans (REP).


To make your application, the following fees apply:

  • Section 149 (2) Certificate - $53

  • Section 149 (2) and 149(5) Certificates - $133

Your application will be processed within five working days from the date of payment. Urgent certificates can be processed within 24 hours for an additional $100 fee as long as we receive your application no later than 3.30pm the weekday before it is required.
