Lennox Head residents are being urged to have their say about the controversial redevelopment application (DA) by McGearys Sand Quarry currently before Ballina Shire Council.
The DA is set to be determined by the Joint Regional Planning Panel in coming months.
The EDO (Environmental Defenders Office), together with community group No Sand Mining for Lennox will hold a free public workshop in Lennox Head on Thursday evening (January 18) explaining how the community can have their say on the proposal.
It will cover the development assessment process, steps the community can take to protect the environment from the impacts of development, both before and after developments are approved, and tips on submission writing and how to influence decisions affecting the environment.
The workshop will take place at the CWA Hall in Mackney Lane from 6pm to 8pm.
There is no charge but attendees are requested to RSVP to [email protected]
