* Ecological Assessment & Advice

Ballina Shire Council
Ballina LGA

In 2012, the NSW Minister for Planning & Infrastructure initiated a review of the application of Environmental Zones (E Zones) and overlays in Local Environmental Plans on the Far North Coast of NSW. Amongst the implications arising from this review was the deferral of proposed land use zonings in some areas.

We have recently been appointed to undertake ecological assessments and provide advice pursuant to informing required aspects of proposed E2 and E3 landuse zonings as outlined in the Final Recommendations Report of the NSW Government's Northern Councils E Zone Review. We will be working closely with Ballina Council planners, the intent to apply a progressive and well-informed approach to the task.
