The NSW Government is seeking your feedback on improving the policy framework for voluntary planning agreements (VPAs).
The framework includes a draft Ministerial Direction, draft Practice Note and draft Planning Circular.
The Government wants to encourage councils and developers to work together to get the best possible outcomes out of VPAs so that:
• There’s a clear public benefit arising from the VPA that relates to the development;
• The VPA negotiation process is fair and reasonable between parties, and is transparent to the broader community;
• The identification of infrastructure in a VPA is informed by an assessment of local community needs.
We welcome your feedback on the draft Ministerial Direction, draft Practice Note and draft Planning Circular. Submissions can be made until 27 January 2017.
