Council is seeking public comment on the draft ‘Planning Agreement Policy 2019’ placed on public exhibition between Friday 6 September 2019 and Friday 4 October 2019.
The draft Policy has been prepared following a review of the current Planning Agreement Policy, approved by Council on 15 June 2016. If adopted by Council, the draft Policy will supersede the current Policy.
The ‘Planning Agreement Policy 2019’ sets out the framework, responsibilities and processes for negotiating a voluntary Planning Agreement with Ku-ring-gai Council.
Changes from the 2016 Policy include updated references to the renumbered and restructured Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and, where relevant, changes foreshadowed in the draft Practice Note for Planning Agreements dated November 2016. This draft Practice Note has been exhibited but not yet adopted by the Department of Planning.
It is anticipated that a more comprehensive review of the Planning Agreement Policy will follow the comprehensive review of other related documents, such as the Development Contributions Plans, as part of the strategic planning work required as part of the Greater Sydney Commission’s present focus.
