A large DA for a mixed-use precinct, located at 6-10 Station Street in Bangalow, has been withdrawn by development firm, CADRE. It has been named the Lumber Yard.

In a statement from Christopher Tyas, CADRE founding director, he said, ‘After extensive work with the Byron Shire Council and Bangalow community, we have made the difficult decision to withdraw our current application’. 

‘We undertook an extensive and voluntary eight-month community consultation process which resulted in the scheme that we ultimately lodged with Council.

‘Unfortunately, objections to the project did not align with the feedback we initially received from the community consultation and in order to expedite progress on the planning assessment we have chosen to withdraw.

‘We intend to take on this additional community feedback, work with Council to revise the design again and resubmit later this year.

‘We are passionate about the Lumber Yard and will continue to do what it takes to deliver a precinct which meets the community [expectations] and respects the sites heritage and cultural values’.
