Mayor of the Goondiwindi Region the Honourable Cr Lawrence Springborg AM has said he is pleased to be able to announce that a feature of Goondiwindi Regional Council’s 2022-23 Budget, to be adopted next week, will be no-cost planning application fees for industrial lot reconfiguration (sub-divisions).

“In the last 12 months, more than 200 residential lots have either been approved or come to market, which is the envy of many regional communities,” Cr Springborg said.

“Council’s focus now turns to industrial land development,” he said.

“Council aims to keep the region an easy place to do business, attracting new investment and doing what we can to create opportunities for economic growth,” said Cr Rob Mackenzie, Council’s portfolio holder for Planning.

“Available industrial land is critical for a broad range of sectors, from agri-business to manufacturing opportunities, and emerging sectors. It is also a sign of a healthy, growing local economy,” said the Mayor.

“Creating this incentive helps to stimulate private sector investment, create jobs for the future and drive economic growth.

“Our local real estate agents have provided feedback to Council about the current limited industrial stock on the market, and Council is doing its bit to motivate private land owners and investors to take action.

“Growing our local economy results in a more productive and prosperous Goondiwindi Region into the future. 

“We want people to know they’re dealing with a pro-business and pro-development Council, and that when they approach Council with an idea or plan for investment, that Council will support and work with them to help make that venture happen,” the Mayor said.
