Free workshop on Byron environment plan

Free workshop on Byron environment plan

The Environmental Defenders Office Northern Rivers (EDO) is holding a free afternoon workshop in Byron Bay this Saturday, August 26, at the Byron Community Centre.

The workshop will focus on the introduction of the standardised Local Environment Plan (LEP) and the Part 3A development amendment to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

These changes will significantly affect the framework of the planning legislation, as well as the ability of councils to plan and control development in their own areas, said the EDOs senior solicitor, Jessica Wood. It is important that communities keep abreast of the changes in order to engage effectively.

The free workshop runs from 1pm-4pm. To register or for more information please contact Tisha Dejmanee on 9262 6989 or email tisha.dejmanee@edo.org.au.
