“The down time for DevelopTT’s maintenance works will be from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 29th August, 2020″


The Ministry would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the stakeholders – inclusive of applicants and the many government agencies intertwined in the system – who have played major roles at one point or the other in seeing this DevelopTT platform become a reality.

DevelopTT, Trinidad and Tobago’s online portal for development permitting, officially launched its pilot in March 2020 and is an undertaking of the Ministry of Planning and Development in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Through the DevelopTT portal, the development application and approval process are transformed by replacing the paper-based system of submitting application for planning permissions, building permits, completion certificates and many of the other property development approvals required, with online/ electronic submissions and processing.


Applicants are guided through the process of obtaining permissions from the Municipal Corporations and multiple agencies in a step-by-step approach, which will ensure that the right documents and information are submitted at each step, thereby enhancing the overall efficiency of the process.


In the initial phase of the DevelopTT pilot, the online portal welcomed planning permission applications which fell within the boundaries of the Port of Spain City Corporation, the Diego Martin Regional Corporation and portion of the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporations (ALL T1 PLANNING REGIONS).


On June 8th 2020, the pilot was expanded to include the T5 PLANNING REGION. Please see the image below.


To date, over 600 persons have registered for the use of the DevelopTT system, while the system has received just over 100 applications thus far.
