Take a survey online and contribute to the future vision of the Lennox Head Village. Image supplied.

Those with a stake in Lennox Head are encouraged to have their say on how its main street will look in the future.

Ballina Council and the Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce are running an online survey until June 20 to find out what the community would like as part of an upgraded town centre for Lennox Head. Options of a one- or two-way street system, parking, parks, footpaths, shared pedestrian and car zones and landscaping are all being considered as part of the upgrade.

Upgrade options

The Lennox Village Vision (LVV) study area is bounded to the east by the beach foreshore and residences, to the north and south by residential areas and to the west by Williams Reserve.

Ballina Council’s sustainability planner Skye McNamara said, ‘Feedback received though this engagement will be collated and reported to the elected council in the coming months to assist in decision making around the future scope and costs involved in an upgrade of the Lennox Head village centre, particularly with respect to future master planning and design works for the public domain.’
