Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement for Lots 431 and 432 DP 1189536, 431 and 431A Greggs Road, Kurrajong

Council is exhibiting a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (draft VPA) that will apply to Lots 431 and 432 DP 1189536, 431 and 431A Greggs Road, Kurrajong.

The draft VPA is complementary to a proposed amendment to Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012 which will enable the development of the site into eight 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.
