Council seeks to diversify housing options at Wollongbar

Ballina Shire Council is looking to improve diversity in the residential housing market and has commenced the design process for medium density housing options on Council-owned land on Dundee and Elsa Avenues in Wollongbar.

The Wollongbar Housing Project aims to address the growing housing needs of our community, promoting diversity, sustainability and inclusivity in our region.

Concept designs have been developed by a local consultant that include a mix of one, two, three, and four-bedroom dwellings to provide quality accommodation that meets the needs of our community.

Stage One concept designs reveal an initial layout of five lots, delivering a total of 15 dwellings and 17 garage spaces.

The proposed mix of housing includes:

  • 2 x Four-bedroom duplexes
  • 9 x Three-bedroom townhouses
  • 1 Manor home including 1 x One-bedroom unit, 2 x Two-bedroom units and 1 x Three-bedroom unit.

The project is in the concept design stage with many decisions yet to be made by Council including design, planning approval and selection of construction partners. Council is seeking feedback on the concept designs to ensure the project meets community expectations.

Residents are encouraged to subscribe for project updates and provide their feedback on the project and concept designs at

Feedback on the Wollongbar Housing Proposal closes Friday 5 July 2024.
