Woolies battle council
It will mark the start of the latest round in the battle by the giant retailer to start the development, opposed by a big section of the Mullumbimby community.
Byron Council voted last week to ‘vigorously’ defend its decision in the court challenge and reaffirmed its reasons for refusal.
Chief among those reasons was the failure of Woolworths to demonstrate that appropriate arrangements could be made for the management of sewage generated by the development.
Mayor Cr Jan Barham said Woolworths had bought the site at Mullumbimby knowing there was a sewerage moratorium.
