110 new homes planned for Bangalow
THE NSW Government has endorsed a rezoning proposed by Byron Shire Council which will see the construction of dozens of new residential dwellings.
Minister for Planning, Tony Kelly, said up to 110 new dwellings would be created at Bangalow.
“Five areas included in the rezoning have all been identified as proposed future urban growth areas within the Far North Coast Regional Strategy,” the Minister said.
- Rankin and Granuaille roads;
- Ballina Road (north and south);
- Thomas and Charlotte streets; and
- Parrot Tree Place.
Mr Kelly said land had been rezoned from rural to residential under the Byron Local Environmental Plan.
“The rezoning will provide the continued opportunity for a diverse range of housing options for Bangalow,” the Minister said.
Ballina MLC Amanda Fazio welcomed the announcement.
“These amendments are necessary to allow residential release areas at Bangalow to be rezoned to meet present and future housing demands,” Ms Fazio said.
Mr Kelly said a development control plan was currently being completed by council to assist with the assessment of specific development applications to allow subdivisions and housing construction in the release areas.
