SOUTH LISMORE will be the home of a new Sikh temple after plans were granted consent by Lismore City Council.

Consent was determined on October 22 and the consent will lapse on October 22, 2025.

The council consent enables the applicants "to undertake the erection of a Place of Public Worship (Sikh Temple) and associated civil works, fencing, carparking and landscaping".

Previously, the church had been on public exhibition and was originally submitted in June earlier this year.
