Building Improvement Rebate

The Building Improvement Rebate supports the revitalisation of building facades across the Mackay region. Building facades and shopfronts immediately affect the perceptions one has of a town centre. Improving building facades contributes to the perception of place and encourages overall improvement to the region’s economy, safety and community connection. Council’s Building Improvement Rebate seeks to work in partnership with property and business owners along with estate agents and property managers to facilitate and support the revitalisation of commercial facades.

Rebates of up to $3000 to undertake building improvement upgrades can be applied for. A rebate is also available for eligible cleaning works up to $1000. Please read through the guidelines for more information on the requirements of the rebate. For more information please contact Council’s Economic Development team on 1300 MACKAY (622 529) or email in to
