Planning Agreements

Planning Agreements Policy

In December 2009 Council adopted the Planning Agreements Policy. The Policy was updated in May 2014. The current version became effective in May 2021 and was readopted by Council in July 2022. The Planning Agreements Policy is supported by the Planning Agreements Procedure.

In February 2021, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment released a Planning Note on Planning Agreements. The Practice Note provides detailed guidance on the negotiation, administration and making of planning agreements.
