Ocean Breeze Reserve Master Plan
Ballina Shire Council is preparing a Master Plan for the Ocean Breeze Reserve in Lennox Head to guide future use of the site. This reserve is on public land owned by Council.
The Ocean Breeze Reserve Master Plan study area is 1.2 hectares and is located 1.5 kilometres south west of the Lennox Head Town Centre. The site is bounded to the south by Hutley Drive and an unconstructed road reserve, and to the east, north and west by residential areas. Byron Bay Road is also located to the east of the site. The site is accessed off Ocean Breeze Drive and Hutley Drive.
Land to the south, known as the Reservoir Hill, has recently been rezoned to enable residential development. Future extension of Hutley Drive to connect to North Creek Road has been planned as part of the rezoning process. Key features of the area include some established vegetation including native and introduced tree species, palms and shrubs. A significant proportion of the site is open grassland.
Over the last six months, Council has sought community feedback on the reserve's future and invited residents to complete an online survey to understand the community's aspirations for Ocean Breeze Reserve.
Council is now using this community feedback to inform the preparation of a master plan for the reserve.
A draft Ocean Breeze Reserve Master Plan is expected to be placed on exhibition mid 2017.
