Staged rollout change for large OS DA

Plans by a developer to change the staged rollout for a large Ocean Shores subdivision, and nine dwellings on 11 and 13 Warrambool Rd and 9 Bian Crt, Ocean Shores, are now on exhibition on Council’s website.

Detectives are renewing an appeal for public assistance as inquiries continue into the death of a man at South Murwillumbah earlier this year.

Just after 5am on Friday June 13, emergency services were called to a home on Quarry Road where they found the body of a 46-year-old man, who had died from extensive injuries.

The man’s 25-year-old son was also found injured inside the home.

The son has told police he was woken by a man who threatened him before tying him up and assaulting him. He was treated at the scene for a minor head injury.

Detectives from Strike Force Areae, formed to investigate the man’s death, are renewing an appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information that could assist the investigation to come forward.

In particular, police would like to speak with anyone who saw a woman at the home or in Quarry Road at the time of the incident.

It’s believed the woman had been seen in the area in the months prior to the assault and could assist police with inquiries.

She is described as being aged in her early to mid 20s, tall and has short blonde hair.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
