The sixth development application for residential lots at Iron Gates in Evans Head has been lodged with Richmond Valley Council.

Goldcoral Pty Ltd Pty Ltd (receiver and manager appointed) lodged the DA and it is on public exhibition until February 26.

The DA includes demolition of existing buildings, roads, stormwater, and sewage infrastructure on the site.

The plan is to subdivide the site into 129 lots for 121 residential lots, one future community refuge lot, two public open space lots, two lots for future Stage 2 subdivision and one residue lot.

The DA includes construction of internal roads, stormwater, sewage, and other utility infrastructure, vegetation management works including vegetation removal and retention and ongoing environmental management.

Goldcoral wants to establish a site for a community refuge building for use during severe bushfire and flooding events.

Upgrades to Iron Gates Drive includes road widening and reconstruction and vegetation trimming.

A separate future DA would be submitted to the council for the proposed Stage 2 subdivision which proposes a further 17 residential lots.

There is a separate Aboriginal Cultural Heritage report and a Flood Assessment report.

The consent authority on this DA is not Richmond Valley Council. It is the NSW Land & Environment Court that decides if this DA goes through.
