Council has developed two infrastructure agreements designed around incentivising development in Short-Term Accommodation and Hotels; and large scale developments within our major centres of Beenleigh and Springwood.
Hotel and Short-Term Accommodation
Council has introduced this economic initiative to defer infrastructure charges to encourage investment and jobs and to address the lack of short-term accommodation options within the City.
New hotel accommodation developments that achieve a 3.5 to 5 star rating with Star Ratings Australia may seek to have their infrastructure charges deferred for components such has bedrooms and suites. This deferent remains in place for the life of the development, as long as this star rating is maintained.
Springwood and Beenleigh Economic Development Zones
New developments within the Centre Core precincts of Beenleigh and Springwood that meet multiple criteria may be eligible to defer up to $1 million dollars of infrastructure charges. Criteria includes mixed-use developments with a food and drink outlet plus office space.
