A Planning Agreement (PA) is an agreement entered into by Council and a developer. Under the agreement, a developer agrees to provide or fund public amenities, public services, affordable housing or other infrastructure.
Planning Agreements cannot be entered into unless public notice has been given and an explanatory note is made available for inspection for at least 28 working days.
Council's policy on Planning Agreements became effective on 05 December 2016 and can be downloaded below:
The purpose of the Policy is to establish Council's policy and procedures on the use of Planning Agreements. The Policy provides a short overview of the objectives, principles and requirements in relation to Planning Agreements in the Canada Bay LGA.
Draft Planning Agreements are documents that have been reported to Council for the purposes of public exhibition but have not been executed. Draft Planning Agreements currently on exhibition are available at the link below:
Council will consider submission received prior to finalising a Planning Agreement. Once a Planning Agreement is entered into, it will be placed on the Canada Bay Planning Agreements Register and made publicly available.
Current Planning Agreements in the City of Canada Bay are provided below. Hard copies are able to be viewed at Council's Administration Centre during business hours, 08:30am - 4:00pm.
If you are considering making an offer to enter into a Planning Agreement, it is critical that you discuss it with Council staff as early as possible to avoid any unnecessary delays in the assessment of your development application or planning proposal.
