Request building or property information

Types of property information you can request

One of the many functions of Council is to provide land or property information under Regulation 51. You can request information about the property under four categories:

Land information

  • whether the land is subject to flooding or bushfire
  • whether it is designated land (where protection measures might be in place)
  • whether the land is subject to termites (please note that all of Mitchell Shire is in a declared termite area).

Legal point of discharge

  • information on the location of the stormwater drainage area that discharge from the land must be directed to.

Local drainage information

  • information that relates to details of pipes within the drainage on, or adjacent to, the property.

Planning information

  • any permit or certificate of final inspection issued in the last 10 years
  • whether a combined allotment can be treated as one, and whether any subdivided building is exempt from having to conform to any particular building regulations
  • any current building notice or order that applies to the property.
