Build Your Future


Summerland Credit Union is partnering with Lismore City Council to assist people to own their own home.

There are two components:

1. Applications are now open for Lismore City Council’s Build Your Future initiative.

Build Your Future is part of the Building Better Regional Cities program, which has resulted in the construction of the Pineapple Road/Ballina Road roundabout, the Invercauld Road/Ballina Road intersection and the Molesworth Street/Orion Street roundabout. The upgrading of these intersections has provided improved street access to the city’s major land release areas.

Through the Build Your Future initiative, in addition to this infrastructure, there are 200 grants of $20,000 each available to approved low to moderate income earners or other eligible 

parties who purchase a Build Your Future land lot. The purpose of the grant is to assist the successful applicants to build their new home and cater for their family needs.

The 200 Build Your Future lots will be made available at six locations throughout the city and applications are now open for people who wish to purchase a lot and apply for the $20,000 grant. The locations are:

  • Airforce Road, East Lismore 
  • Altitidue Eco Village, Casuarina Drive, Goonellabah 
  • Echo Glen, Invercauld Road, Goonellabah
  • The Plateau (The Winten Group), Dunoon Road 
  • Valley View, Pineapple Road, Goonellabah 
  • Sanctuary Hill, Invercauld Road, East Lismore

Detailed information on eligibility and application forms are available from the Build Your Future website.
