‘Affordable housing’ DA released for public comment

A proposal to build an "affordable housing" development in Byron Bay is on public exhibition.

The proposal would see alterations and additions to five existing buildings and another four would be built from scratch.

To be approved, the DA would require permission for the floor space ratio set down by Byron Shire Council's policies to be varied.

Documents filed with the DA have indicated the proposed development could house 132 people.
