Planning agreements

Section 93F of the Act makes provision for Council to enter into Planning Agreements with developers as a means through which additional public benefit is provided. Under these agreements, Council enters into a legal contract with a developer to construct public facilities and infrastructure or provide public services as part of the conditions of development consent. Please refer to Council’s Planning Agreements Policy for further information.
