Disability services plan disrupted
BALLINA mayor Phillip Silver has urged a disability service organisation not to "abandon" its plans for a new facility in the town after the council rejected its application last week.
Northcott Disability Services had lodged plans for a transitional group home and educational facility at a property it owns in Cawarra St, Ballina.
But councillors last week voted against the facility, saying it would not fit in with the residential nature of the cul-de-sac.
Cr Silver called on Northcott staff to speak with council staff about other possible locations.
