There are different types of contacts that can be attached to a permit in the online permitting system.
To use the online permitting system to view information about a permit, you must be a permit participant or an authorised permit contact. If you are not and want to view or manage permits, you will need the permit holder to complete the following form and send it to us.
To find out about the different contact types you can have on a permit and what they can see and do in the online permitting system, see the following page.
You do not need to complete this form if you are a new permit applicant, (if you have never had a previous permit or application with us). You just need a RealMe® login to use the online permitting system.
