Draft Mosman Planning Agreements Policy

Feb 10, 2016 Other

The public exhibition of the draft Mosman Planning Agreements Policy has now closed.

The draft Mosman Planning Agreements Policy sets out the process for entering into a Planning Agreement with Council under section 93F of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (the Act), to ensure transparency, probity, certainty of roles and process.

A Planning Agreement is a voluntary agreement or other arrangement under section 93F of the Act between one or more planning authorities (i.e. Council) and a person (developer) made in conjunction with the development of land under which the developer agrees to make a development contribution or contributions towards a public purpose. This may be the dedication of land, payment of a monetary contribution, and/or provision of a material public benefit.

Submissions on the draft policy closed on 10 March 2016.

A post-exhibition report will be reported to Council within the next few months.

The draft policy and supporting material can still be viewed on Council’s consultation website
