Section 94 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 permits councils to require as a condition of development consent, the reasonable dedication of land or the payment of monies, or both, for development that is likely to require the provision of, or increase the demand for public amenities and public services within the area.
Councils must adopt contributions plans before they levy a contribution. A contributions plan identifies public services and amenities to meet the demand of development. Examples include open space, recreation facilities, car parking, and community facilities.
Section 64 of the Local Government Act 1993 allows contributions to be levied towards the provision of water, sewerage and stormwater infrastructure. Council must have a Developer Servicing Plan in order to levy a Section 64 contribution.
The developer servicing plans enable Council to levy contributions where the anticipated development will or is likely to increase the demand for water or sewer supply services. Generally, additional capacity is required in these supply systems to accommodate the increased demands, and the contributions levied by Council will provide for that capacity.

Currently within the former Queanbeyan City Council LGA there is a local planning agreement called Googong Urban Development Planning Agreement. You can download the Agreement and other supporting documentation here.
Also within the former Queanbeyan City Local Government Area three development contribution plans currently operate. These are:
Queanbeyan City Section 94 Contributions Plan - Extractive Industry 2014 - The purpose of this plan is to allow the council to recover that part of the cost of maintaining council roads which is due to damage caused by the transport of extracted materials, by means of a road maintenance contribution imposed as a condition of development consent on all materials extracted within the council area. Table 1 shows the schedule of works from 2014 to 2019.
