Belongil landowners will again take Byron Shire Council to the NSW Supreme Court over a ‘significant financial loss and diminution in value of their properties,’ and other issues that have arisen from ‘works in front of the Jonson Street carpark.’
Council will go into confidential session in the meeting of June 29, and the agenda says ‘the proceedings have been ongoing since late 2010.’
It reads, ‘Council’s solicitors, Council’s Legal Services team and staff have been considering a settlement proposal put by the [sixteen] plaintiffs.’
‘Council’s solicitors will apprise councillors of the present state of the settlement proposal in a confidential presentation to councillors.’
There is no recommendation from staff tabled in the agenda.
