Development application registers

Council is required to maintain a register of development applications and decisions under s 264 of the Planning Act 2016. 

These documents can be accessed through the following two platforms:

  1. Applications lodged and decided since 1 November 2019 can be viewed through our online services portal.
    • This handy guide will help you navigate the DA tracking section of the online services portal.
  2. Applications that were processed and decided between 3 July 2017 and 1 November 2019 are available through the TRACK portal.
    • This handy guide will help you navigate the CHRC TRACK portal.

Information available includes:

  • Application type
  • Status
  • Name of applicant
  • Date lodged
  • Location
  • Assessing officer
  • If application has been decided
  • Work history
  • Relevant documents

Emergency Management Dashboard

Up-to-date weather, road closure and disaster information.


This information:

  • Is to assist customers in tracking progress of the development applications.
  • Deals with key milestones in the development application process – it is not a detailed history.
  • Should NOT be relied upon as accurate especially by those who may be using this as a basis to decide whether to purchase or finance property – if you fall into that category you should obtain further written confirmation from Council.

Please note that some types of documents (e.g. plans, drawings and documents containing personal information) may not be available through Track, even if they form part of a development application which is otherwise available.

The information available on Track may be incomplete and should not be relied upon as a search. No warranty is given in relation to the data (including accuracy, reliability, completeness or suitability) and no liability accepted (including without limitation, liability in negligence) for any loss damage or costs (including consequential damage) relating to any use of the data. Customers should continue to perform their building search online at, over the counter at one of our Customer Service Centres or by fax, post or email.
