Edwina Hart, Mullumbimby
Mullumbimby currently has the opportunity to create a wonderful residential development in Tallowood Ridge. They have a chance to show how development can be done well by protecting biodiversity, preserving the natural environment, and creating an appealing and harmonious community.
By allowing protected trees to be cut down, diminishing nature reserves, and approving inappropriate double-storey buildings, and giving little or no consideration to community space Council and the developer have been completely misguided.
Once this is created, it’s done, and hindsight doesn’t help. We need Council to take action immediately to help us create a development that is the best it can be.
Council is voting on the Tallowood Stage 7 development applicaton on Thursday April 11. We want councillors to prioritise the long-term interest of the community and the environment.
We are up to stage seven of the development and the developer has had more land in Tallowood re-zoned for residential purposes. We need to get this right, now.
