We would like to thank all members of the community who provided submissions on the Planning Proposal.

The draft Planning Agreement

A Planning Agreement is an agreement between Council and a developer where a developer agrees to provide or fund public amenities, services or other infrastructure.

At the City of Canada Bay's August 2022 Council Meeting, Council resolved to place a draft Planning Agreement for 160 Burwood Road, Concord on public exhibition.

Should the Planning Proposal proceed, the draft Planning Agreement will deliver:

  • A new, public park alongside the Exile Bay foreshore
  • Park landscaping and pathways
  • Public access over parts of the site.
    The draft Planning Agreement will be on public exhibition from 20 September – 28 October 2022. Following the exhibition period, Council will determine whether to proceed with the Planning Agreement. This decision will be made at the same Council meeting as the Planning Proposal is determined.
  • Relationship of Planning Agreement with Planning Proposal

    Please note, feedback is now sought specifically in relation to the draft Planning Agreement. The outcomes of the recently exhibited Planning Proposal is a separate consideration process to the exhibition of this draft Planning Agreement. However, the draft Planning Agreement is a way to implement certain outcomes contemplated by the Planning Proposal.
