To achieve Masterplan visions, some of the planning controls in the Byron Local Environmental Plan (BLEP) should be reviewed and updated.
The aspects of the Masterplan that Council want to enable at this stage, by potentially amending the above controls, include:
- facilitating well designed development of appropriate height and scale, in line with community vision;
- defining the edges of the Town Centre 'business zone';
- protecting the character and vibrancy of the town; and,
- easing congestion and making the Town Centre more 'people friendly'.
The Planning Controls that have been discussed at previous workshops include; zoning, building heights, design excellence and parking.
