Council may elect to enter into a development agreement (often referred to as a private development agreement) with a developer in accordance with Section 207A of the Local Government Act 2002.
A development agreement is a voluntary contractual agreement entered between one or more developers and the Council. Examples of situations that that may trigger a developer agreement are providing, supplying, or exchanging infrastructure and/or land, or paying money to provide network infrastructure, works or reserve land.
A development agreement provides developers with certainty and flexibility to proceed with a development that may not align with the Council's infrastructure provision timeframe.
