Voluntary Planning Agreements Register

Planning Agreements are a legally binding contract between a planning authority (City of Ryde) and a developer made under Section 93F of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EPA Act).

Planning Agreements generally require a developer to dedicate land free of cost, pay a monetary contribution or provide any other material for public benefit to be used for public infrastructure or another public purpose. 

Clause 25F of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (EPA Reg) requires Council to keep a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) Register available free of cost to the public. Find out more about Voluntary Planning Agreements.
