Ballina Shire Council has commenced the Lennox Village Vision: The Future of Lennox Head Village Centre (LVV) project. The LVV project seeks to gather community feedback on issues and ideas for the Lennox Head village centre (defined as the area indicated in the image below). The information gathered through this consultation process will be used to guide Council decision making in regard to the future planning and development of the village centre’s public spaces.
 
To assist with this process you are invited to complete this survey. This survey should take around 10 mins to complete. If you would like to be kept updated on the progress of this project, there is an option at the end of the survey to provide your email address.
 
Please see Ballina Shire Council's website www.ballina.nsw.gov.au for more information concerning the project, preliminary streetscape designs and concepts.
