Northern Villages Guidance Group

Expressions of Interest

Council is keen to engage with our northern communities as part of the next phase of preparing the draft Residential Strategy. If you live in the north of the Shire and have an interest in urban planning then apply to be part of the Northern Villages Guidance Group. Fifteen to twenty members are sought, from the following areas:

  • Brunswick Heads
  • Billinudgel
  • Ocean Shores
  • South Golden Beach
  • New Brighton

Expressions of Interest are open until 28 July 2017. Please complete the EOI form at the tab below.

The Byron Shire Residential Strategy will enable Council, with help from the community, to communicate where and how the additional 3,000+ homes needed for our increasing population by 2036, are to be delivered in our towns and villages.

Community guidance groups are already in place for Bangalow, Byron Bay and Mullumbimby to assist Council with developing and or delivering the respective towns and villages masterplans. However, as village master planning has yet to be undertaken for the northern villages of the Shire, there is no structured guidance group to represent this area. In the absence of such a groups (or groups) it was decided to facilitate the formation of one representative group for the northern villages of the Shire to assist with the preparation of the Residential Strategy.

It is hoped that this group will remain after the Residential Strategy is completed for the purposes of further consultation on other Council projects.

More information regarding the Residential Strategy can be found on Councils website.

Contact Council's planners Alex Caras or Natalie Hancock on 6626 7126 if you require further information.
