Sometimes it is the case that Councils are incorrectly blamed for encouraging environmentally damaging development.
The Ballina Shire Council has lodged a submission to the Northern Regional Planning Panel to have our environmentally sensitive wetland area currently under threat from a $75 million development (DA 2022/721) rezoned to C2 (Environmental Conservation). Submissions close Friday 28 April.
Council needs public support for the submission and I believe all ‘thinking Ballina residents in particular (if not all of the Northern Rivers) should make the effort to achieve this end.
Please write/email to Ballina Council with your gratitude. Save Your Castle!
