Plans to expand Riva Vue estate in Murwillumbah rely on rezoning permission.

AN expansion of the Riva Vue housing estate in Murwillumbah can only go ahead if the land is rezoned under Tweed planning regulations.

The land between Joshua St and Barnby St to the west of the existing estate is zoned mostly agricultural protection and partly urban expansion.

Tweed Shire Council resolved in 2010 to support a Metricon proposal to have the land changed to low density residential land use under the Tweed Local Environment Plan 2000.

The proposal justifies the rezoning as a "logical infill of the current urban footprint" and states a low density residential zoning would "allow development of the site consistent with the surrounding land to the east and south" and "be the most appropriate means of allowing residential development on the land."

A council meeting in December last year resolved to put the planning proposal up for public exhibition.

The Riva Vue estate was hugely popular last year creating a boom for Murwillumbah land sales and construction in an otherwise soft Tweed market.

It was also praised for providing a lifeline for struggling tradies in need of work.

You can view the planning proposal by clicking here.

Make a submission to the planning proposal in writing before close of business Wednesday April 18 to General Manager Tweed Shire Council PO Box 816 Murwillumbah NSW 2484.
