Student housing initiative wins award

Brisbane City River

A large team of Development Services staff were recognised at the recent Lord Mayor’s Awards for Excellence for their work on student accommodation development applications.

The team were awarded a Commendation for Excellence in Leadership in Economic Development for ensuring economic opportunities in the field of student housing.

The initiative, which offers a reduction of infrastructure charges for purpose-built, high quality student accommodation, has seen Council approve more than 11,200 beds as of the end of the 2016/2017 financial year.

Development Services has been a leader in delivering key components of Council’s New World City campaign, so congratulations to all involved.
