Community Group Infrastructure Charges Policy

To recognise the important contribution community organisations make to the South Burnett Region, Council is committed to lowering the barriers for these entities to grow and expand their activities.

Council is preparing a formal policy to offer reduced infrastructure charges to eligible community groups when community developments are undertaken by those groups. The policy aims to provide up to a 100% reduction in infrastructure charges payable by eligible community groups.

To be eligible the community group must be a registered not-for-profit group, must undertake development that benefits the community of the South Burnett Region, and not received funding from a government source in the last two years.

A copy of the proposed policy is available here or by requesting a copy at planning@southburnett.qld.gov.au.

Written comment on the policy must be forwarded to Council at this email address before 5pm on Monday, 21 September 2020.
