How much green space will there be at North Lismore Plateau?

NEW IMAGES released as part of the development application for the North Lismore Plateau estate paint a clearer picture of how the project will look once complete.

The new 433-lot suburb will be Lismore's largest residential subdivision in decades, on a brand new greenfield site with stunning views across the Lismore basin.

The landscape masterplan released by developer Winten Property Group as part of its DA includes two major parks, large swathes of bushland revegetation sites, and a main boulevard with stands of feature trees.

The development comprises a smaller precinct below the plateau escarpment, containing 100 or so lots alongside a major park, and the larger precinct on the escarpment itself with more parks and surrounded by extensive bush regeneration areas.

The major park under the escarpment will have a host of features, inlcuding a wetland boardwalk and viewing platform, a "celebration lawn" complete with stage, a large covered playground and barbecue area, oublic toilets, a dog off-leash area, a "kickabout" space.

Another central park area up on the main escarpment estate includes a lookout east across Lismore, as well as a covered playground, share pathway, and a potential "cultural heritage" location comprising a large circular space.

There are also three other local park "nodes" strategically located at northern and southern ends of the residential areas.

The main road leading up to the escarpment will include stands of feature trees.

The estate's entrance off on Dunoon Rd just north of the Lismore Showgrounds will also feature an "entry statement" sign adding to its prestige, described by the landscape architects as "simple, robust, timeless, and unique".

The development is costed at $15.6 million with Lismore City Council but has an estimated market value of around $90 million.

It is currently on public display with Lismore City Council.
