1000 more to call Lennox home
By Patrizia Reimer
YET another development is planned for the plateau above Lennox Head.
Combined with the recently-sold Pacific Pines estate, almost 1000 more people will soon call the area home.
To be called 'Elevation', the new residential subdivision is set on 46 hectares along North Creek Road.
It is about 10 minutes from the Ballina-Byron Airport, and under 2km from the beachfront. It will create 116 new home site, to be built in five stages, with the first being released in early July.
"It's a top spot, integrating the best of both hinterland and coastal village living," said local planner Steve Connelly.
"You're close to the water with hinterland views, you're on a hilltop plateau, most of the blocks are level and it's not in suburbia. The design guidelines are excellent in that they strive toward a modern, climate-conscious beach environment."
Mitch Nielsen, managing director of Indigo, one of the joint venture partners, said the aim for Elevation was to create a unique address in Lennox Head.
"Lennox Head is part of the burgeoning growth on the Northern Rivers region, and an area where we can provide a high standard development that will include facilities never before offered in the area," he said.
Mr Nielsen said Lennox Head had the potential to become the new residential hub for the Northern Rivers as affordable land to the north became increasingly scarce.
