About the Duty Planner

In order to assist you in understanding Council's planning controls and the development assessment process, we provide a free Duty Planner service from 9:00am-4pm, Monday to Friday

This service is designed to provide preliminary advice on planning planning-related enquiries associated with properties. It is not to be used for pre-purchase enquiries or for questions about conditions relating to a Development Application. 

For pre-purchase enquiries, please see the Section 10.7 Planning Certificate contained within the contract for sale and information found at the NSW Planning Portal. If your pre-purchase enquiries relate to information on covenants or easements, please speak to your conveyancer for details within the contract for sale.    

For enquiries related to conditions relating to a Development Application, please contact the assessing officer at council@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au 

To obtain a fee quote on a Development Application please complete and return our Fee Enquiry Application Form

Please note: due to high demand on this service, we are unable to go through all of Council's controls in detail or provide a detailed assessment of any development proposal you may be considering. If this is required, you may need to engage your own planning consultant or legal practitioner.  

To access the Duty Planner service you will need to book an appointment through our on-line booking system. 

All appointments are for a maximum of 15 minutes and you will need to answer some standard questions in order for us to ensure that your enquiry is efficiently directed. 

It is recommended that you book a Pre-Lodgement meeting for any large or more complex proposals prior to submitting your application to Council.
