Public Exhibition - Draft Works-In-Kind Policy

Exhibition of the Draft Works-In-Kind Policy


Council is placing the Draft Works-In-Kind Policy on public exhibition.


Under the provisions of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, Council has the power to require development contributions toward the cost of providing services and facilities to meet the demand generated by the development. Council has a number of Contributions Plans that require contributions toward the provision of open space, recreation facilities, community facilities, roads, drainage and other community infrastructure.


Works-In-Kind Agreements provide opportunities for developers to deliver infrastructure for the community much earlier than Council would often be able to achieve, as they are already constructing works on site. By constructing works, developers can offset the development contributions they would otherwise be required to pay to Council.


This policy applies to all requests to carry out works-in-kind in full or part satisfaction of conditions of consent requiring development contributions to be made to Council.



The Draft Works-In-Kind Policy will be exhibited for a period of twenty-eight (28) days from Tuesday 6 April 2021 to Tuesday 4 May 2021.
