Public domain works to be provided under a voluntary planning agreement (VPA) are often associated with works arising from a development application (DA).
Before a VPA can be prepared, a public benefit offer must be submitted to the City of Sydney for review and agreement of the works or the contribution proposed. The draft VPA will then be publicly advertised before it is formally agreed.
Works proposed under a VPA must be documented and approved by the City. This requires information to be submitted, similar to the requirements for works required under a DA.
Submissions and approvals
Detailed information about the submission and approval of works under a VPA are outlined in the Public Domain Manual (download below).
