Subdivision Plan Approval

Also known as Plan Sealing and Survey Plan Endorsement

If your development involves the creation of new lots (in freehold or in strata), Cairns Regional Council must approve the new subdivision plan in accordance with section 69 of the Planning Regulation 2017, prior to the lodgement with the Department of Natural Resources and Mines – Titles Registry Office.

Council approves the subdivision plan once the development is finalised and all conditions of all related approvals have been met.

To assist Council to process your subdivision plan approval efficiently, please make sure you have all relevant supporting information lodged with your request, complete the appropriate forms, and pay required fees, including, but not limited to:

  • A fully completed Subdivision Plan Endorsement Application form ( PDF, 1.12 MB );
  • Full proof of compliance with all conditions of any Development Permit for Reconfiguring a Lot, Material Change of Use, Operational Works and all other approvals relating to the application
  • The applicable fee
  • Ensure that all rates and levied Infrastructure Charges are paid in full.
