Archival plans

Archival search request 

Should you require a copy of approved building plans for your property, you can arrange for Council to retrieve building plans from archives. We can search for any plans that have previously been submitted to Council. The records are kept either at the Town of Victoria Park’s office, or offsite with the City of Perth.

To access plans a payment of $75 is required. If you need the search done urgently you can pay $200 and the plans will be available within 48 hours, provided it is not requested on a Friday.

The weekly cut off to request plans from archives is 5pm every Wednesday. Once a week we will collect the requested plans from our archives. Should you elect to collect the plans, we will contact you when they are ready to be collected.

Copies of plans will be charged in accordance with the Schedule of Fees and Charges(PDF, 166KB). We will advise you if payment for copies of plans is required.

If the plans are not found, the cost of the search will not be refunded. Please note that Council is not able to guarantee which documents are in the envelopes.

To submit a search, please complete the Archival Search Form(PDF, 176KB) and forward to
