Project Status: When you need to do this
What you need to do
- Access and search the catalogue.
- Not sure where to start? Let us know what you’re looking for and request a City record.
- Where available, you can request copies.
- If the archives you seek are not available online, you can visit us to view them at Town Hall House, Level 21, 456 Kent Street, Sydney. Archives are stored offsite, so it’s essential to make an appointment first.
Our search room is temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Contact us by email for assistance.
Before you start
This collection includes development and building applications and related records. Only those records that have been transferred to the City Archives are available through this site with the most recent being about 2008. For more recent records, search development applications.
