Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement for Lots 104 and 105 DP 1051618, 1442 and 1442A Kurmond Road, Kurmond

Council is exhibiting a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (draft VPA) that will apply to Lots 104 and 105 DP 1051618, 1442 and 1442A Kurmond Road, Kurmond.

The draft VPA is complementary to a proposed amendment to Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012 which will enable the development of the site into 13 large lot housing allotments.

The objective, nature and effect of the draft VPA is for the developer to provide Council with a cash contribution of $30,000 for each vacant housing lot created.  It is anticipated that contributions collected by Council will be expended on local and district infrastructure and facilities such as, but not necessarily limited to, cycleways, bus shelters, landscape and park embellishments and local road improvements to serve the needs of the community as a consequence of the development.

The draft VPA, an Explanatory Note and other supporting documentation are on public exhibition 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday at the Council offices, 366 George Street, Windsor for the period Friday 7 October 2016 to Monday 7 November 2016 and can be viewed below or on Council’s online community engagement site.
