A rainwater tank of ‘at least 20,000 litres is required’, which will connect to all toilets and all hot-water systems in the development.

A six-kilowatt photovoltaic system is also part of the DA.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Lucky, greedy or just [email protected][email protected]? You tell me Barry. Who the hell needs 8 bathrooms in one house. My guess is someone with 25 kids. With the life sustaining biosphere suffering as it is shouldn’t we all be having less, using less, consuming less. The ego driven pursuit of status within the byron shire repulses me these days. It’s why I left. At least the planet will breathe a sigh of relief once humanity has consumed itself into oblivion. It’s just sad for all the innocent species we continue to take with us.
