Skennars Head Development

A new Skennars Head development application has been lodged with council this week. The development is called The Outlook and will be located on the old Stewart Farm land between Angels beach estate and Skennars head.

In documents lodged with the council, the proposed lots would generally range in size from 600sq m to 900sqm, with some lots above 1200sqm. Initial cost estimates put the development at $14 million.

The developers are asking for deferred commencement approval, which would delay works until a western connection road was built by developers (Lend Lease and Royal Bank of Scotland) of the neighbouring Pacific Pines Estate.

Timing for the new western road which is part of Stage 1C of Pacific Pines estate, is still unclear and not likely to be any time this year – Stay tuned for more information as it comes to hand!

For full details of the application head to Ballina Shire Councils online DA trackers, its really useful website for keeping up to date with changes in the shire.

North Lismore Approved

The NSW Planning Department approved the rezoning of 255 hectares of land which will allow for the creation of a new suburb in North Lismore.

For a development 15 years in the making this will be a milestone for the future use of Lismore. The new development will put the focus back on into our business centre, especially the CBD as the development is so close. It will reinvigorate North Lismore, with the rezoning  ultimately allowing for 1300 residential lots, with 1500 new dwellings housing around 3600 people.

Council has already adopted a Development Control Plan and Section 94 Contributions Plan which means developers can lodge their DAs immediately. The Winten Group will lodge a DA for the 450 fist house immediately.
