The Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) for 127 – 133 Burwood Road, Burwood (Lot 100, DP703387) has been submitted in conjunction with Development Application DA.2021.119 which proposes the change of use of its car parking area of fourteen (14) cars from car parking to alfresco dining for its patrons. The application includes a voluntary planning agreement for financial contribution to Council as a public benefit as part of the application seeking approval for removal of ten (10) on-site visitor car parking spaces.

The offer to enter into a VPA has been made by the Developer and provides for the payment of a monetary contribution (Development Contributions) in lieu of the provision of ten (10) on-site visitor parking spaces, subject to development consent being granted.

The planning provision enabling monetary contributions in lieu of parking on-site is contained within Burwood Development Control Plan, a publically exhibited document which was initially adopted by Council on 12 February 2013. The mechanism allows the aggregation of funds by Council for the provision of efficient and sensitively located public car parking facilities.

The VPA and Explanatory Note are on exhibition from Wednesday 13 July – Friday 12 August 2022.
