More information on PSPs can be found on our Strategic Planning Page.

The Unit is also responsible for all planning permit applications in the Urban Growth Zone where a Precinct Structure Plan has not yet been approved.

In addition to issuing planning permits in growth areas, the Unit is also responsible for the planning and delivery of infrastructure projects, the management of development contributions, and a range of implementation issues related to growth area planning.


The unit has developed various templates to assist in the implementation of planning permits. These can be downloaded below.

The Unit has also developed a template Section 173 Agreement to be used for the implementation of development contributions. To discuss using the template please contact the Unit directly.
