Public Notice of Amended Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement – 23-27 George Street, Burwood

The draft VPA provides for the developer to pay a monetary contribution to Council for the purposes of providing, augmenting or improving open space, community facilities or other public facilities as determined by Council, in exchange for additional development on the site. 

The draft VPA was proposed under Development Application (DA) No. 179/2016, involving the construction of a 20 storey mixed use development above basement parking. Council at its meeting on 23 May 2017 resolved to enter into the VPA subject to the approval for the DA and the contribution amount being based on the contribution rate at the time of the Council meeting. The DA was approved by the Burwood Local Planning Panel on 10 July 2018. The draft VPA has now been revised to reflect the DA approval, the increased monetary contribution amount and updated land ownership.

Local Strategic Planning Statement


A draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) has been prepared for the Burwood local government area.

The draft LSPS sets out the 20-year vision for land use in the Burwood area and identifies priorities and actions for Council to make Burwood more liveable, productive and sustainable in the future.

It sets planning priorities about what will be needed, such as homes, jobs, parks, transport and services, and also sets short, medium and long-term actions to deliver these priorities.

The LSPS is on public exhibition for six weeks for feedback from the community and stakeholders and will be finalised following this consultation.

A range of strategic background studies are also being prepared which will inform the final version of the draft LSPS and contribute to the long-term vision for Burwood.

The 20-year vision for Burwood

Burwood is home to a thriving town centre and cherished heritage conservation areas that are conveniently connected to world class transport, with well designed buildings and inviting public spaces.

A wide range of jobs attracts workers and visitors and enable more locals to work closer to home. The streets are alive day and night with people drawn to its renowned hospitality and entertainment offerings.

Neighbourhoods are safe places filled with distinct character, offering a range of housing options. Clean, green, leafy neighbourhoods provide great amenity with access to nearby open space.

Council will be at the TVB Anywhere Carnival on Saturday 17 August and the New Impressions Moon Festival on Saturday 14 September. Drop by to find out more and provide your thoughts on the draft LSPS.
