Planning authorities currently covered by the service

We don't yet cover the whole country, but we are working on it. New authorities are being added all the time, so if your local authority isn't listed below sign up anyway and you'll start receiving alerts once it has been included.

We currently cover 67% of Australia's population within 151 authorities. For this number we're only counting places where the main planning authority is covered. As an example, most of Victoria is covered by the SPEAR system but not all Victorian planning applications go through it. So, we don't include SPEAR in our population count.

If you are a programmer and would like to write a scraper for your local authority, or work for a local authority and would like to make your data available, find out how you can get involved.

From time to time planning authorities change their websites which breaks the scrapers that gather the planning data. In the list below you can also see the authorities that we haven't received planning data from for a while which is a good indication that something is wrong. These are marked as possibly broken. You can help by providing a donation or volunteering to help us fix it.
