A Planning Agreement (PA) is a voluntary agreement between a developer (seeking a development or rezoning approval) and a planning authority, under which the developer is required to dedicate land free of cost, pay a monetary contribution, or provide any other material public benefit, or any combination of them, to be used for or applied towards a public purpose. A planning authority may include council, the Minister, a development corporation or other public authority, while a public purpose includes such things as: the provision of (or the recoupment of the cost of providing) public amenities and services; the provision of transport and infrastructure; monitoring of the planning impacts of development; and/or the enhancement of the natural environment.
Planning agreements can be entered into at either the rezoning or development application stage and must be publicly exhibited for a minimum of 28 days before they are entered into.
