Public submissions close Monday December 8 for a proposal to develop Ewingsdale land surrounding the Byron Central Hospital.

Proponent Leigh Belbeck is asking Council to amend one of its planning instruments – the Byron Local Environment Plan (LEP) 2014 – to permit seniors housing, medical centres, business premises, restaurants or cafes, and shops.

Previously the proponents held public meetings and distributed leaflets around the suburb, however Council acted when dissatisfied neighbours requested more time to consider the development.

  1. What is the point of having an LEP if it can be changed by developers as required? This is over development in a rural location, call it Senior Housing or whatever you want, the end result is dozens and dozens of shitty little houses crammed onto a glorious piece of land that deserves better.
