Investment Incentives

Supporting local businesses, growing industry and welcoming investment from outside the region are the main drivers for our Investment Incentive Policy.

We have taken the lead in supporting ongoing economic growth and development, and job creation and, while the broader economic conditions are beyond our control, we can remove barriers and create local conditions to make it easier for business and industry to generate opportunities and respond to challenges.

The new policy allows for the waiving of infrastructure charges to incentivise the construction of affordable medium-density dwellings, the development of strategically important industries and attraction of major catalytic projects. This includes apartments, flats, units, townhouses, day care centres, medical centres, manufacturing facilities, industrial development, aged care facilities, hotels and more. Development incentives can be as much as $100,000/project, with a cumulative value over the life of the policy of $2M.
