The National Broadband Network (nbn) is a high speed broadband network designed to reach 100 per cent of Australian premises and provide the communications infrastructure to help us stop falling behind in an increasingly online world.
nbn is committed to delivering leading edge broadband services to all Australians by leveraging the three types of technology available - fixed line, fixed wireless and satellite, depending on location.
As part of the fixed radio (wireless) component of the Network, nbn is proposing to expand the existing radio network base stations at the following site to provide high quality wireless broadband services to customers in the surrounding localities.
The proposed works on site will involve the upgrade of existing technology upon the facilities including and not limited to the replacement and installation of new antennas, radiocommunications dishes and associated ancillary equipment to enhance transmitting technology. Furthermore, the works will involve the replacement and addition of equipment shelters at ground level, adjacent to the facilities.
nbnTM regards the proposed installation as an Exempt Development under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Code) 2008 and State Environmental Planning Policy (Infrastructure) 2007. As such, it does not require planning approval from the Richmond Valley Council.
Further information on the specific proposals can be obtained by calling Charlotte Phillips by telephone or via email.
Written submissions can be sent to PO Box 23061, Docklands VIC 8012 or via email to Charlotte Phillips.
The closing date for submissions is COB Friday 25th January 2019.
