In most cases, a planning agreement must be concluded before certifying that satisfactory arrangements have been made. “development contribution”, which is made available by a developer under a voluntary planning agreement, may mean a financial contribution, the free dedication of land or the provision of a material “public good”. The term “planning obligation” in turn refers to an obligation of a promoter who asks it to contribute to development. The public interest is served by the use of fair and enforceable planning controls for the benefit of the whole Community and by equality between developers. Given the public nature and purposes of VNB, the parties do not have the same freedom of negotiation as in a trade agreement. In AEOPs, there are always issues of “public interest” and “probity” that must be taken into consideration. Planning authorities, and in particular councils, should issue guidelines and procedures for the use of voluntary planning agreements and the development of a AA (or a revocation or modification of the FTA) can be recorded on the title of the land. Section 93(H) of the EP&A Act provides that a planning agreement so registered under the Act is binding from time to time for each owner of the land, as if each had entered into the planning contract themselves. PDOs are generally negotiated as part of the review of planning proposals or the evaluation of development applications, although their use is not limited in this way and varies according to circumstances, in terms of size, value, complexity and innovation. Although there are no formal statistics yet, it is clear that planning authorities, such as the DPE and many local councils, negotiate a considerable number of EPAs each year in the context of spatial planning and development.
The agreement was concluded on the basis of a voluntary planning agreement, which grants a promoter concessions in exchange for a public benefit, in this case an agreement that was in line with the Council`s new cultural policy.
