Controversial Lynwood NBN tower approved
A CONTROVERSIAL application for a 45m NBN tower at Lynwood, near Uralba, has been approved by Ballina Shire councillors.
Cr Keith Johnson moved a motion to approve the tower, despite a recommendation from staff to refuse the application because of concerns raised by the management of the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport.
The vote was met with a round of applause by residents in the public gallery at the council chambers.
Crs Robyn Hordern and Jeff Johnson voted against the approval of the application.
