A contentious large-scale housing/industrial proposal for land opposite the Byron industry estate on Ewingsdale Road will be determined by the Joint Regional Planning Panel next month.
The meeting will be held on Monday October 8 at Byron Shire Council’s Mullumbimby chambers at 1pm and is open to the public.
The proposal for 387 lots includes 378 residential, two business, two industrial, one recreation and four residue lots. It has been fiercely opposed by many residents and councillors; around 5,000 submissions were received, say Council staff, which were mostly against. It will be decided by the Northern Regional Planning Panel, an unelected panel that determines large-scale developments in NSW.
To speak at the meeting, contact the Planning Panel’s Secretariat before 4pm on Thursday October 4 on (02) 8217 2060 or email [email protected]
