If your proposed development involves any subdivision, then Brisbane City Council will have to give the plan their final approval. This process is known as plan sealing.
Even with all the appropriate information and documentation to hand, the process of plan sealing can be a disconcertingly long one.
In order to ensure that the plan sealing process doesn’t cause your project to run over time, you should make sure to submit all the relevant documents and forms as soon as possible. However, you will still inevitably have quite a wait on your hands.
How Can SealSMART Help?
SealSmart is a city initiative which is aimed at reducing plan sealing times by allowing certain accredited parties to certify plans on behalf of the council.
Under this scheme, these accredited consultants will discuss the project with engineers from the City Council. Between them, they will then agree what the certification requirements for the plan should be.
As qualified SealSmart consultants, there are a number of services we are able to offer. We will be able to walk you through the suitability of your application, we will consult with you about what you require and what you hope to achieve in order to arrive at a planning solution that works for you.
Where there is a need to consult with other parties or to obtain specific certifications, we will facilitate these processes and ensure that nothing has been overlooked.
Benefits of Using SealSMART Consultants

Aside from the obvious fact that we will be instrumental in having your application reviewed and processed faster than would otherwise be possible, we can also offer you a greater degree of certainty over the ultimate outcome of your application, as well as a reliable estimate of the time-frame required to process it.
When we pass your application onto Brisbane City Council for final approval it usually takes them 20-30 business days to process it. When we send them a SealSmart application, this turnaround changes to as little as five business days!
