Section 173 Agreements
A Section 173 Agreement will generally be a requirement of a condition placed on your planning permit. Not all planning permits require one, but you will need to read your conditions carefully and act on it if there is a requirement to do so.
A Section 173 Agreement is a legal contract made between Council and any other party or parties, under Section 173 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987. There are a number of requirements set by Council and the Title Registration Service that you, as the landowner, need to meet when entering into a Section 173 Agreement.
