2 September 2015

The public exhibition of the development application for the proposed Byron Bay Bypass closed on 17 August.  The submissions have been collated and will be forwarded with Council’s assessment and responses from the relevant State Government departments to the Joint Regional Planning Panel, once the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage has finished assessing the biobanking component.

Geotechnical investigation works to commence

Residents and landholders are advised that Council’s subcontractor will be undertaking a geotechnical investigation for the Byron Bay Bypass (Council’s resolved bypass route).

This work is being conducted to inform the detailed design for the bypass, in anticipation of receiving the conditions of consent from Council and the Joint Regional Planning Panel for Development Application 10.2015.384.1.

The work zone will commence from the Butler/Shirley/Lawson Streets roundabout and extend along Butler Street into the Butler Street road reserve adjacent to Glen Villa Resort. Work will also be undertaken on Council’s land between Mitre 10 and Byron Music on the corner of Jonson/Browning Streets.

Works are to be carried out from Monday 7 September to Tuesday 15 September 2015 , weather permitting, between the hours of 7am to 4pm.

The subcontractor will be working within the road corridor, including on the road pavement and on the road shoulders. Traffic control personnel will be utilised as required to ensure there is minimal disruption to traffic during the works. Traffic on Butler Street may be restricted to a single lane via traffic control during work hours.  Consideration will be given to peak hour traffic times and work will not be permitted on Butler Street between Lawson Street and Somerset Street on Thursdays until after 11am, to avoid disruption to the Byron Farmers Markets .

Access to properties is not anticipated to be disrupted by the works.

Council regrets any inconvenience caused by these works.
