Voluntary Planning Agreements

A voluntary planning agreement (VPA) is an agreement entered into by a planning authority (such as the Department of Planning and Environment or a Council) and a developer.
Under the agreement a developer can agree to provide or fund:
  • public amenities and public services
  • affordable housing
  • transport or other infrastructure.
Contributions can be made through:
  • dedication of land
  • monetary contributions
  • construction of infrastructure
  • provision of materials for public benefit and/or use.
VPAs cannot be entered into unless public notice has been given and an explanatory note is made available for inspection for at least 28 days.
