Forum to address housing emergency, March 8

A grassroots movement is bringing women, community and art together on International Women’s Day (March 8) in an urgent push to solve the local housing emergency. 

Plans for the proposed Cumbalum housing development near the Ballina bypass have been put on display by the Ballina Shire Council.

There are two precincts between Ballina Heights estate and Sandy Flat Road proposed for development over a 20-year period.

Ballina’s manager of strategic planning Matthew Wood says the population projections based on the proposed rezoning are for about 6.5 thousand people for Precint B and approximately 2.5 thousand people for Precinct A.

The documents can be viewed at here and council will be accepting submissions up until 23 February.
