Our draft Precinct Plan is ready for review:

tell us what you think

The Byron Arts & Industry Estate has evolved over the last decade or so from a local service centre to an eclectic mix of businesses and residential uses. While this evolution has brought vitality to the place, it has also resulted in a number of significant functional issues, not the least of which is traffic and access.

Council has prepared a draft Precinct Plan to provide a framework to address these issues and build a strong platform for the future of the Estate. The draft Precinct Plan has been developed through community consultation and feedback, and a two day Enquiry by Design process with key stakeholders, community members and technical experts.

The draft Precinct Plan delivers a shared vision that celebrates the rich history of the BA&IE as a lively hub for innovation, industry and creativity. It presents a pathway forward that seeks to establish harmonious relationships between the economic, natural and built environments to create a sustainable, user friendly precinct that will actively nurture future generations of entrepreneurs.

The objectives and key actions are presented through the lens of five key themes that capture both the opportunities and challenges of the Byron Arts & Industry Estate:

  • Creative Economy
  • Mobility & Access
  • Environment & Climate
  • Land Use
  • Built Form, Character & Density

Quick win project: A short-term goal to be delivered as part of the overall plan is to trial a one-way traffic route on Centennial Circuit. Due to COVID-19 restrictions this has been put on hold until activity within the BA&IE returns to normal.

What would you like to see at Lot 12 Bayshore Drive?


Lot 12 Bayshore Drive is a key parcel of Council land opposite the IGA Shopping Centre. We are interested in hearing your ideas for this site.

The draft Precinct Plan identifies actions relating to the development of Lot 12 - aiming to create a Sustainability and Innovation Hub as a showcase development for the precinct.

Three development concept options have been created to test potential development approaches and start a conversation with our community. We are interested in your feedback and any ideas you would like to contribute.

Please review the concept options in the Development concept options report and tell us your thoughts.

The map below shows the location of the ‘concept’ area on Lot 12.
