Section 93F of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (the EPA Act) establishes a legal system for negotiating municipal services between planning authorities and developers, such as landowners and developers (`landowners`). The good deal is included in a voluntary planning agreement (VPA). The EPA Act provides VPA with a potentially broad area of intervention, sufficient, among other things, to take into account the practice of “value-taking”. This corresponds to the “incentives” in the United States of America and the “S106 agreements” in the United Kingdom, where increased development potential for land is in fact exchanged for community benefits financed by increased land value. This contribution examines the concept of value collection, provides a basic agricultural rationale, identifies some key issues and describes how they are generally addressed through VPAs. Another article examines in more depth some of the most important issues and some of the current policies and practices of Sydney councils regarding the use of HOVAs for value recording purposes and the implications of governance. If the requirements of the relevant sections are not met, the voluntary planning agreement cannot be applicable and can no longer be invoked by the proponent. In New South Wales, value registration is generally done through VPAs submitted as part of planning proposals under the EPO Act. LTL is primarily designed for the public sector and development experts involved in planning, the environment and government.
