API integration with the NSW Planning Portal

DPIE

For Councils

In 2021 all NSW local governments were required to process 100% of their planning applications through the NSW planning portal. The NSW Planning Portal provides an online portal for councils to receive and track planning applications, however, the portal does not integrate into existing council systems. NSW ePlanning also released a set of API’s that allow connectivity between the planning portal and council systems.

ePlanning.io integrates into all NSW Planning Portal API’s leveraging Microsoft Power Automate’s low code workflow builder.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ePlanning.io?

Built on Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform ePlanning.io is an integration service allowing NSW local councils, private certifiers and state agencies a simple way to connect their existing IT systems to the NSW Planning Portal. We also maintain, support and develop new API updates released by the NSW ePlanning so you don’t need to employ a team of developers.

ePlanning.io for private certifies provides a secure, end-to-end solution for capturing planning applications from your clients through your own custom portal. Private Certifiers can issue digital application forms for electronic signature, issue fee proposals, invoices, conduct assessments, inspections and seamlessly integrate into the NSW Planning Portal. 

Why ePlanning.io?

Integrating into the NSW Planning Portal can be challenging, development skills are required to develop and maintain connectors. Not all councils employ web developers which results in significant vendor costs to build the required connectivity. When future NSW Planning Portal updates are released, councils are dependant on vendors or technical staff to implement, test and release those updates. ePlanning.io removes these on-going, uncertain costs by providing all updates, including test environments and support for a flat, predictable monthly fee.

What is the difference between ePlanning.io Councils
& ePlanning.io Certifiers?

ePlanning.io for Private certifiers is a SaaS application and integration into the NSW planning Portal allowing Private Certifiers to capture planning applications, issue fee proposals, send invoices, conduct assessments and inspections.

ePlanning.io for councils is the API integration allowing councils an easier, more maintainable way of connecting their existing IT systems such as TechOne P&R / Infor Pathway to the NSW Planning Portal.

What problem does ePlanning.io

Since the NSW Planning Portal went live in 2019, NSW councils have been maintaining development applications in two separate locations – the NSW Planning Portal and their own IT systems. Council systems do not natively integrate into the NSW Planning Portal. Maintaining two separate applications requires additional staff to create and maintain data, there’s a risk of human error and it’s not an effective use of resources. ePlanning.io bridges this gap by providing a low code approach to connecting existing council system to the NSW Planning Portal.
