Public again invited in to North Byron Beach Resort
The application by North Byron Beach Resort to modify 75 cabins has been approved by Byron Council.
“We thank our neighbours and others who took the time to come on a site tour, hear our plans first hand and give feedback” said Jeremy Holmes, Project and Development Manager at North Byron Beach Resort. “We enjoyed meeting more neighbours and received a valuable input, which has influenced our central facilities and Eco Education Centre planning in particular”.
Council will now assess a DA for central facilities to service the cabin accommodation.
This DA is on public exhibition until December 17 and North Byron Beach Resort are again holding 30 minute site tours for the public. These will be held on December 9 and 10, bookings are essential.
“This is a great way for people to get to understand what is being proposed as we can explain it while we walk around the site” said Holmes. “There is plenty of time for people to ask questions and give us their feedback”.
The Eco resort central facilities proposal incorporates the following uses in three single-storey organic form buildings centrally located where the current function centre and administration buildings are located:
– Reception, lobby and administration area
– Restaurant and bar (open to the public)
– Central kitchen and food service area
– Conference and function facilities (available for hire)
– Multi-purpose room (yoga, kids club, weddings)
– Lagoon swimming pool and kids play area
– Poolside café
– Day spa (open to the public)
– Loading dock and waste management
– Housekeeping building and car parking area
As part of the development, Bayshore Drive will be upgraded from the railway line and this will include formal public car parking. The beach access will also be upgraded to include a shower, bins, public toilet and a café/kiosk open to the public.
The 75 cabins and central facilities will take up only 10% of the 7.9 hectare site. “The dominant experience will be of landscape” said Jeremy Holmes. “Our design response has been landscape driven, based upon protecting and enhancing the existing fauna and flora. Our strategy is to work with the site’s endemic characteristics including climate, ecosystems, existing infrastructure and hydrological conditions. The Passive Design ethos minimizes ecological impacts in many ways”.
