The voluntary planning agreement (VPA) for Nos 254-256 Liverpool Road, Enfield (being Lots 12 & 13, DP48472) has been submitted in conjunction with Development Application No 132/2020 for the construction of a six (6) storey mixed use development containing a commercial premise at ground level and a new generation boarding house with twenty-seven (27) boarding rooms including manager’s room and one level of basement car parking which provides a shortfall of four (4) 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 four (4) on-site car 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 will be on exhibition from Monday 23 May – Tuesday 21 June 2022.
