Declaration paves way for Mackay makeover
State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Minister Cameron Dick said the Mackay Waterfront PDA declaration would enable Mackay Regional Council to pursue its plan to transform the city’s waterfronts and CBD.
“This declaration will be a catalyst to stimulate the Mackay region’s economy, create jobs, increase investor confidence, and deliver more community infrastructure and public facilities,” Mr Dick said.
“Mackay Regional Council is to be congratulated on the way it has approached this important city-shaping project, particularly the way it has engaged with its ratepayers and brought the community along on this journey."
Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson said the PDA declaration was wonderful news for the city.
