Council extends infrastructure concessions for 12 months

ROCKHAMPTON Regional Council is continuing to say thanks to developers in the region by offering its generous infrastructure concessions for a further 12 months.

Today council unanimously agreed to extend the concessions that were due to cease at the end of the month.

The infrastructure concessions will now continue to provide a 100 per cent reduction for new development within the CDB precinct as well as a 50% reduction for commercial and industrial new development outside the CDB area.

There is also a continued full refund on application fees.

Council's Planning and Development Committee chair Mayor Margaret Strelow said the extension is great news for developers and our Region.

"We are very happy to announce the extension of these concessions," Mayor Strelow said.

"Development is a great thing for all of the region, and if this can assist in even a small way, we want to see it continue."
