As part of your planning permit application, we may request a Section 173 Agreement.
A Section 173 Agreement is a legal contract made between Council and another party, or parties, under Section 173 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 (Vic). The agreement outlines restrictions or requirements on the use or development of land.
A landowner is usually the other part to the Agreement. In some cases, a third party such as a referral authority may also be involved.
