The Business and Industrial Lands Strategy (formerly Employment Lands Strategy) guides Council’s decision-making and key actions to manage future growth of retail, commercial and industrial land in our Shire. It provides guidance on knowledge and creative-industry precincts, co-operative business and innovation hubs, and development close to Byron Central Hospital.
We're growing our economy while maintaining the character of our villages, towns and rural areas.
Where are we now?
After considering a report to 12 December 2019 meeting, Council resolved to adopted the draft Strategy. A motion to reverse this decision has been lodged. This motion will be considered at 20 February 2020 Council meeting and until this time the Strategy will not be forwarded to the Department of Planning Industry and Environment.
