Land Registry Services is phasing out its face-to-face 'over the counter' lodgment service for plans under the Subdivision Act 1988 and survey-based transactions.

The following schedule has been set to phase out 'over the counter' Plan Acceptance lodgment:

  • 1 May 2019 - WEDNESDAY - no counter service
  • 1 September 2019 - TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY - no counter service
  • 1 October 2019 - TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY - no counter service
  • 1 November 2019 - counter service ceases

The existing 'drop-off' box service for paper lodgments will continue to be available.

No reduction of service standards will be experienced by customers.

Lodging parties can subscribe to the SPEAR Electronic Lodgment Network (ELN), which enables electronic lodgment of all survey-based transactions. Information about becoming a SPEAR ELN Subscriber is on the SPEAR website
