Adding a copy of the planning permit

For certification-only applications, where the planning permit has been issued outside of SPEAR, and if the applicant has not supplied a copy of the planning permit with their new SPEAR submission (for certification), council is prompted to 'Add Copy of Planning Permit'.


You will need to complete the following steps to attach a copy of the planning permit:

  1. On the Add Copy of Planning Permit screen, select the option 'Copy of Planning Permit to be attached'.
  2. Browse for and attach a copy of the Planning Permit PDF file.
  3. Select the Planning Permit expiry date from the date picker.
  4. Click 'add now' and a confirmation screen will display if the document was added successfully.
  5. NOTE: If you have suppressed the 'Attach Document' confirmation via settings, you will be returned directly to the Details tab.

  6. Click on the 'return' button to return to the Details screen.
  7. To complete the process, the document must be authenticated.

If the planning permit cannot be attached, a reason must be supplied e.g. planning permit yet to be issued.
