Lennox Village Vision Stage 1. Ballina Shire Council.

Lennox Head residents are bracing themselves for the disruption associated with the next stage of work on the long-awaited Lennox Village Vision project.

Stage 1 includes cultural heritage investigations in Ross Park, Lennox Park and Ballina Street (expected to be completed by mid-October), with the following works commencing on Monday 11 October:

  • Underboring and installation of new drinking water mains.
  • Installation of new stormwater pipes and gross pollution traps in Ross Park and Lennox Park.
  • Minor landscaping works in Ross Park.

Weather and site conditions permitting, these works are expected to take eight weeks to complete. During this time the following changes will be in place:

  • Removal of carparking in Rayner Lane adjacent to Ross Park.
  • Footpath changes and pedestrian detours.
  • Parking will be reduced and may, at times, be unavailable in front of businesses. Council encourages local residents and visitors to use alternative parking and walk to Ballina Street.
  • Ballina Council’s project team will liaise with businesses to maintain customer and delivery access where possible, or provide alternative access points.
  • Noise will be present during construction, including concrete saw cutting of existing surfaces. Construction will be Monday to Friday (7am-6pm) and some Saturdays (8am-1pm). Works may also be required out of hours.

Undergrounding of electricity works are tentatively scheduled to commence between 11 and 18 October, and will take approximately eight to ten weeks to complete. Impacted residents and businesses will be notified once a start date has been confirmed.

Ballina Council said it apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks the community for their patience. For more information about the staging of works, and to register for project updates, visit ballina.nsw.gov.au/LennoxVillageVision.
