CLARENCE VALLEY COUNCIL - YAEGL COUNTRY

DEVELOPMENT PROFILE
Birrigan Gargle Local Aboriginal Land Council (BGLALC) alongside Developer Stevens Group received a DA in 2019 to develop a 140 lot residential development located on Hickey Street, Iluka (Lot 99 on DP823635). This has since been modified to 145 lots. The development will see the clearing of 40 hectares of land.

WHERE IS IT UP TO?

As of October 2022, construction phase is underway and the first slabs have been poured.

The developer has made an approach to Council about including within the site’s boundaries a smaller parcel of adjacent land, which is covered by Native Title and could be developed with up to 50 additional dwellings if approved.
WHAT’S AT STAKE?

  • Approximate area to be cleared: 40 hectares
  • Limited infrastructure, resources and services - the town has no doctor and very little infrastructure which would be unable to support this increase in population and would hinder evacuation in the event of bushfires or floods.
  • 13.76 ha of vegetation: The development plans will impact the area’s residing species clear of over 70% of the area’s threatened species habitat.

HABITAT FOR:

  • Glossy Black-Cockatoo
  • Koala, Coastal Emu
  • Yellow-bellied Sheathtail-bat
  • Varied Sittella
  • Acacia Disparrima
  • Pink Bloodwood
