A development contract is a voluntary contract between a local court and a person who owns or controls the property within the jurisdiction, defining the obligations of both parties and setting the standards and conditions governing the development of the property. Although the agreements are voluntary, as soon as they have been concluded, they engage the parties and their successors. Local authorities should describe the long-term costs and maintenance requirements for both the jurisdiction and the developer, as well as the procedures and monitoring processes for future changes to contractual terms.
