The 5 most important DAs for Lismore in 2020
As the years roll on, the things around us change as cities look to grow and evolve.
We are taking a look back at some of the most important development applications to happen in Lismore in 2020.
Lismore's sporting hub
Lismore has set it's sights on becoming the premier sporting hub in the Northern Rivers and this $6 million dollar project is the centrepiece.
The DA was lodged earlier this year and the Council has begun calling for tenders on the project.
The project will ensure Lismore's sporting precinct can host top class AFL and NRL matches for years to come.
Bexhill Development flies out the door
Surrounded by some of Australia's best beaches, great community towns and amazing food and produce, it is no wonder that people are flocking to the area.
This Bexhill development is one of the key housing developments occurring in the Lismore LGA and will be one to watch in 2021.
Quarry gets quashed by council and residents
The Santin Quarry was a regular feature at Council meetings in 2020 as debate raged over whether an extension should be granted.
It ended up being a complicated case due to a pre-existing DA that expired, passionate residents and the business being a sizeable employer in the area.
Sikh Church coming to Lismore
South Lismore will be the home of a new Sikh Temple after a DA was lodged with Council earlier this year.
The temple will mainly be a place of worship but also place for the community to gather.
The temple is a coup for Lismore given the Sikh religion is one of the fastest growing religions in the world.
North Lismore Plateau Development
Another regular Council feature was the North Lismore Plateau which has been a controversial issue throughout the year. As it stands, the developers have lodged a new DA which is open to submissions until January 21.
Estimated to cost $8,608,157, the DA was to undertake a subdivision of two lots into 85 residential lots, two super lots, and two residual lots.
