Voluntary Planning Agreements

Voluntary Planning Agreements

A Voluntary Planning Agreement (or VPA) is an agreement entered into by a planning authority (such as Council or NSW Planning and Environment) and a developer. Voluntary Planning Agreements are often used to secure certain things in new developments or instead of Development Contribution Plans where a developer agrees to provide or fund: 

  • public amenities and services
  • affordable housing
  • transport or other infrastructure.

Voluntary Planning Agreements can secure the developer's contributions through:

  • the dedication of land
  • monetary contributions
  • construction of infrastructure
  • provision of materials for public benefit and/or use.
