Lot 107 sale plan up in air

An offer by the Roads and Traffic Authority of $225,000 for Lot 107 Shara Boulevard is still up in the air.

The offer for the controversial seven hectare site, previously earmarked for sporting fields, was the subject of a debate by Byron Council on Tuesday.

However the council neither accepted or rejected the bid outright.

What it did do was vote to investigate whether one of three RTA-owned blocks of land in the area could be swapped for Lot 107 and developed as sports fields.

It is understood that two of the blocks are in the Billinudgel area.

The council has angered a large section of the community by voting to add Lot 107 to the adjacent wildlife corridor.

The Ocean Shores Community Association is holding a meeting next Wednesday at 7.30 pm at the community centre to bring residents up to date on the issue.

All interested residents are invited to attend. Council officials have been invited to attend.
