Lot 22 Mullumbimby - Future housing

Council is proposing to rezone and reclassify part of Council-owned Lot 22 DP 1073165, Stuart Street, Mullumbimby to provide for additional residential development.

The proposal includes changes that reclassify 22ha of the 29ha block from 'community' to 'operational' (meaning the land could in future be used for housing).  A new residential zone and clause along with a 200m2 minimum lot size is proposed to ensure a supply of diverse 1, 2 & 3+ bedroom dwellings to meet the needs of our community.

The planning proposal to amend the Byron Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014 was on exhibition from 31 October to 12 December 2018.  A submissions report went to Council in April 2019 with the recommendation that further flood studies be undertaken as part of a wider flood study for the South Mullumbimby precinct and be reported back to Council on completion.  This recommendation was endorsed. Council is currently working to liaise with other land owners in the area to progress this action.
