Place Planning Collective

We are excited about a new way to progress the implementation of our town and village masterplans with our community.

This innovative approach is called the Place Planning Collective - a group of community members, staff and Councillors who will guide the implementation of actions of our place plans for Bangalow, Mullumbimby and the Byron Arts and Industry precinct and then future place plans.

Where are we now?

Following an expression of interest process, Council, at the 12 December 2019 meeting, nominated seven community members to sit on the Place Planning Collective.

Details about the seven community members nominated can be viewed in the Council Report from 12 December 2019.

Where to next

We will add to the chosen community members by appointing five additional community members through a random selected process to form the Place Planning Collective.  Once the membership has been finalised, the first meeting will be scheduled for early 2020, where Terms of Reference will be established.
