Project details


Council has endorsed the public exhibition of the draft Voluntary Planning Agreement policy.

About the policy

The Planning Agreements policy provides a framework for the preparation and execution of planning agreements related to the provisions of Part 7 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The policy sets out the purpose, scope and objectives for the preparation of planning agreements and includes guidelines that set out how the policy will be used in planning and development within the local government area.

The policy applies to planning agreements that the Council might enter into with a land owner or developer who requests changes to a Local Environmental Plan either through a planning proposal request or a development application for land within the Inner West Council area.
