Review the draft document

What we're doing

We are seeking your review and feedback on our draft Planning Agreement Policy 2022 (the Policy).

Planning Agreements are legal agreements between Council and other parties - developers and landowners. It is important that our community are aware of changes that we make to the policies relating to these agreements.

The draft Policy guides how Council will consider a developer's offer to enter into agreements that may result in payment of monetary contributions, or transfer of land or infrastructure to Council for use as a public purpose. This Policy will, when adopted, replace the Northern Beaches Voluntary Planning Agreement Policy 2019.

More information about Planning Agreements, including a register of Planning Agreements executed with Council, can be found on Council’s website here.

To accompany Council’s Policy, the Guide for Developers 2022 (the Guide) has been prepared as an information guide for developers to use. This Guide replaces the Voluntary Planning Agreement Guideline 2019.

We invite you to read more and have your say by:

  • completing the submission form
  • emailing council@northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au
  • writing to us marked ‘Draft Planning Agreement Policy’ to Strategic & Place Planning Team, Northern Beaches Council, PO Box 82 Manly NSW 1655.

All submissions will be considered and changes will be made to the draft policy if required. The outcomes of the public exhibition and the updated policy will then be reported to Council for consideration.
