Electronic Lodgement

Lodge your Application through the NSW Planning Portal!

On the 8 July 2019 Cessnock City Council introduced electronic lodgment via the NSW Planning Portal provided by The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.

You can now submit the following Applications and Certificates through the NSW Planning Portal
