Draft planning agreements policy framework


The Department is seeking feedback on an updated planning agreements policy framework. Planning agreements are a tool for delivering innovative or complex infrastructure and public benefit outcomes.

The draft framework was originally exhibited in early 2017 and submissions were received with diverse and complex comments. The policy has been reviewed in response to these submissions, as well as to address the recommendations of the Kaldas review and to align it with contemporary policies and practices.

The proposed changes will result in a clearer and more transparent contributions process and will allow planning agreements to be used for their intended function to fund innovative infrastructure solutions.

The updated draft planning agreements policy includes:

Your feedback will help inform critical improvements to the infrastructure contributions system in NSW.

You can provide feedback on this proposal until Friday 12 June 2020 using the online submission form below.

If you cannot lodge your submission online, you send a written copy of your submission to:
