The purpose of the following guideline is to outline and explain the procedures for private certifiers to electronically submit all building approval documents.
It is cheaper to submit privately certified building approval documents electronically rather than by hardcopy as a reduced document submission fee now applies for online submission. If you submit your building certification documents online, all associated documents must also be submitted electronically. For example, if you submit an engagement notice online, then you must also submit the decision notice, final notice and any other documents online.
Building applications can be easily submitted and paid for using the Online customer service portal, 24/7. It allows applicants to track the progress of their applications submitted through the portal by using one user account per business/individual with ease.
To use the portal, register (top right hand corner) and then select 'Development applications'.
Further information about the portal can be found in the 'Submit your development application online' article.
PDF applications can be emailed to email@example.com.
PDF applications can be submitted in person to your local customer service centre.
The payment of the document submission fee must be through an existing Toowoomba Regional Council debtor account or paid over phone by card.
Documents must be in PDF format:
The approval documents are required to be saved as 1 PDF in the following order:
The documents listed above are required at the time of submission as they are mandatory requirements as stated in s86 of Part 6 of Chapter 4 of the Building Act 1975.
Note: Do not provide a hard copy if submitting electronically.
To reduce the file size of Adobe PDF documents refer to the software provider, e.g. Adobe Acrobat for instructions on reducing PDF file sizes.
When uploading documents you are using your internet data allowance and capability. Reducing the file size will save time uploading and potential for errors. Council's network also has limitations on the total volume it can receive at one time.
