The Canterbury-Bankstown Local Environmental Plan 2023 is Council's principal planning document to regulate effective and orderly development in our city. The LEP provides objectives, zones and development standards such as lot sizes, floor space ratios and building heights.
Development contributions are levied on new development in Canterbury-Bankstown to help fund the cost of providing additional or improved local public infrastructure needed by the new development.
Click on this link for the contributions plan, calculator, explanatory Fact Sheets, contributions register and repealed plans.
Planning agreements are contracts voluntarily entered into by Council and a developer in relation to certain planning proposals, development applications or complying development certificate applications. The planning agreement requires the developer to provide public benefits (such as land, a financial contribution, constructing infrastructure or other public facilities or services) to address the implications or merit of the development.
