A well-structured and well-designed voluntary planning agreement can work well for all parties involved, both for developers who have more security and control over what they are being run, how and when, and for councils that don`t have to do the job themselves. All comments on this proposal may contain information that is personal data, such as.B. Information you identify, etc. for the purposes of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1988. The indication of personal data in your repository is optional. If this is not indicated, the Council will not be able to contact you through the vpA project.

B later, facilities, etc. It may also be necessary to remove all treaty approval requirements if the transfer is to a family member or related company of the original contracting party with the Commission. Beyond the Council, you must be careful as to who owns the parties to the voluntary planning contract.
