The Development Incentives Policy seeks to attract and support projects that will deliver great economic benefits to the Rockhampton Regional Council Local Government Area.

The current Development Incentives Policy applies to development applications made between 15 May 2018 and 31 December 2020. Projects must be completed within three years of the development application being approved by Council.

This program does not replace the function or application of Adopted Infrastructure Charge Resolution (No. 5) as No.s 2-4 will not be applicable.

Reconfiguration of a Lot Incentives Policy

Council's Reconfiguration of a Lot Incentives Policy applies to large scale reconfiguration of a lot approvals and is designed to deliver significant and sustainable economic development and growth outcomes for the region.  Eligible developers will have the opportunity to:

  • have any applicable infrastructure charges allocated to each lot; or
  • defer the payment of the agreed infrastructure charges until either ownership of the lot is transferred or within two years of a new title being created for the lot (whichever is the earliest).
