The Lismore City Council will this evening consider a development application for an 82 lot housing subdivision on a 40 hectare site.

The site is located north of the intersection of Pineapple Road and the Bruxner Highway, about six kilometres east of the central business district.

A report to councillors says that the land has been identified for residential use in various council strategies and plans for the last 24 years.

During the exhibition of the land’s rezoning application, the council received 32 submissions from 30 people, raising conscerns about traffic, amenity and view loss.

But the report to councillors from staff has recommended that the DA be approved.

‘On balance, it is considered that any potential negative impacts are outweighed by the benefits associated with the proposal including additional diversity for future home owners; proximity to a highway; flood free location; a developable area that is generally clear of native vegetation; proximity to existing urban development; proximity to existing services and amenities; positive biodiversity outcomes; a site that provides panoramic district views and cooling summer breezes; and associated economic benefits,’ the report says.

The proposed development is just a small part of what is planned for the area.

‘The entire Pineapple Road Precinct has a development potential of approximately 330 lots and a 240 dwelling seniors living complex,’ the report says.

‘This DA involves the partial development of an approximately 40ha site that is under single ownership.’
