Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement for Lot 2 DP 1177011, 377 Bells Line of Road, Kurmond

Council is exhibiting a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement that will apply to Lot 2 DP 1177011, 377 Bells Line of Road, Kurmond.   .

The draft Voluntary Planning Agreement is complementary to a proposed amendment to Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012. The draft Voluntary Planning Agreement will enable subdivision of the subject site into seven large rural residential lots with a minimum lot size of not less than 4,000m2 and one community title lot greater than 2ha in area accommodating the existing vegetation.

The objective, nature and effect of the draft Voluntary Planning Agreement is for the developer of the subject site to provide Council with a cash contribution of $30,000 for each additional residential lot created on the subject site. 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, park embellishments and road improvements to serve the needs of the community as a consequence of the future development of the subject site for residential purpose.
