Byron identity John Cornell plans to develop his 60-hectare Ewingsdale property into a 41-lot residential subdivision. One of the lots contains his existing house on the hillside.

The property abuts McGettigans Lane and St Helena Road but new access to the subdivision is proposed off Parkway Drive. Lot sizes range from 3,263sqm to 21,547sqm, and wastewater will be treated on site.

According to the flora and fauna survey by Peter Parker, 10 threatened wildlife species have been seen on the land.

The story goes that Mr Cornell purchased the land below his house site in the 1980s so he could preserve his views.
