In May 2022, Lismore City Council released a discussion paper that presented a range of recommendations for growth and post-flood recovery.
A total of 327 submissions were received after extensive online and face-to-face engagement activities were undertaken.
Council has incorporated this feedback and produced a Draft Growth and Realignment Strategy that sets out potential growth areas for residential, commercial and industrial land, as well as recommending a long-term planned retreat from the most high-risk flood affected areas.
Council will be hosting a public forum at Invercauld House on Monday, 10 October from 5 – 6.30pm to discuss the strategy including:
- How to re-invent the CBD to be fit for the future
- Potential new commercial/residential mixed-use precinct in East Lismore (Golf Course site)
- Potential mixed-use development precinct around SCU in East Lismore
- Potential new industrial land locations identified, including significant expansion of Goonellabah Industrial Precinct (Oliver Avenue).
