Longtime local residents Christopher Dean and John Bennett now head up an ‘all-local’ management team at the Tallowood Ridge housing development in Mullumbimby, after the recent departure of high-profile property developer Eric Freeman.

Dean and Bennett are founding members of the Northern Rivers Community Foundation, and represent two of the nine ‘all-local’ team. Others include Peter Dean, George and Mark Knott, Tony Farrell, Ian Hicks, John Mills and Bahrat.

‘This is an historic moment,’ says Christopher Dean, ‘as Mullum now embraces a new village which will energise our Shire with good people and add to the creative diversity of the area. We are really excited about having the opportunity to provide good homes at great value for teachers, nurses, bakers and candlestick makers. This will become a vibrant village, with an artistic heart that adds to the joy of living here in Mullum.’

Outgoing manager Mr Freeman told Echonetdaily, ‘My role in the project was to address the planning and servicing issues including lack of sewer, flooding and design of the sports facilities and community centre.

‘My role in gaining approvals for Tallowood is now complete: Tallowood is connected to the Council sewer system, stage one is created and the master plan, including the extensive sports fields, is now approved for all future stages.’

Stage one complete

A project manager, Anthony Cougle, has been appointed and is understood to be looking to buy into the estate.

The public is invited to attend the celebration of completion of stage one and to join the team for drinks and an outline of how the project will provide a way for local families to be able to stay in the area and purchase their own home. An open day will be held 24 November from 4.30pm on site on the ridge. It is located at the end off Tuckeroo Avenue, off Left Bank Road.

Mr Bennett added, ‘We will be encouraging residents to get connected to each other and share the great benefits of living in a community rather than just an apartment. We look forward to hearing any suggestions on how we can better meet the needs of the community, so please come by on Friday and tell us.’
