June Grant, Mullumbimby
Re suggestions Byron Shire Council may be considering rezoning and selling the ex-Telstra site in Mullumbimby.
The time for public submissions to the Draft LEP 2012 have closed and analyses of those submissions were presented at the last council meeting (none was received for the Woolworths or ex-Telstra site).
I’m unsure of the process from here on but I am sure that people who agree that the Woolworths planning aberration should remain in isolation and it not be ‘proposed to extend the Mullumbimby town centre by zoning both the Woolworths site and ex-Telstra site to B2’ (commercial) need to contact their councillors now.
Let me remind everyone that the original Mallam’s proposal was going to be approved with five extra shops and that many a business community member of the day expressed great relief when the proposal became one for a supermarket only.
