Ean Jones, Bangalow.
Regardless of the double rainbows overhead and the marvel of unicorns running around lush green rain forests that are promised for the Bart Elias owned development on Lismore Rd, Bangalow, the truth of the matter is that three of the eight factories planned for this development are bigger than just the one Bunnings Warehouse Superstore in Ballina.
This development will deliver not one Bunnings Warehouse Superstore for Bangalow but three. To put this hideously planned development in perspective, it is about the same size as Ballina Central, Coles and Kmart combined.
Is this what we really want for our beautiful town, a massive development on regionally significant farmland with factories the size of three Bunnings Warehouse Superstores, a disgraceful industrial centre the size of Ballina Fair? I don’t and I doubt most of Bangalow do either. But you will get it and thousands more cars and trucks in our streets that come with it if you do nothing.
Sign a petition, ring a Councillor, speak to our state and federal MPs and remember, Its OK to say no to this development regardless of promises made by tenants or developers.
