Bmx track? Motocross track, outdoor exercise park, no housing should go here

Lot 22 is the Mullumbimby Sports and Recreation grounds which was bought cheaply by council a few years ago from a local farmer for sport and recreation because it would never be deemed suitable for residential housing due to a number of constraints including flooding. However, suddenly Byron Council have now decided that this flood plain is now the best place in the shire to build “affordable” housing. How is it that it wasn’t good enough for a poor old farmer to subdivide but it’s fine for Council to do exactly that? This is how this “blow in” Greens Council treats local, hard working people 🤬😡😠🤯

Byron Shire Council can we all so tell you what we all think about that damb ugly thing on the ozigo roundabout

The SES is against this development due to the potential for a flood disaster, but the Councillors are ignoring the experts and continue to press on with pushing this through! The question is WHY?

Lot 22, oh, of course, everyone knows where that is

An opportunity to take away land allocated for future recreational needs as the shire population grows. Such a valuable asset being stolen by our so called “Greens” Council. Housing is important but not at the expense of community assets which can never be reclaimed. There is plenty of land in our shire that could be made available for housing but our council does not support local land owners making that land available....it’s better to take away community land so these councillors can make themselves look virtuous as they destroy a community.

fix your bloody roads!!!!!

LOOK - cute koalas!

Now that we have your attention....

The loss of biodiversity has a devastating impact on our environment.

Our community and Council want to ensure our children, and their children can experience the majesty and beauty of our natural environment.

That is why we are developing a new Biodiversity Conservation Strategy.

Help inform the strategy! Let us know your priorities when it comes to Biodiversity.

STOP WEST BYRON STOP BUTLER ST BYPASS

Maaaaate. I planted 20 odd gums for these guys, the community has since pulled them all out. Then when I tried protecting the area. What did you do?

Please look at the bypass options for Byron as the Butler Street route maximises biodiversity impact in red flagged critical habitat such as the endangered Mitchell's rainforest snail. All impacts included ground water hydrology of wetlands, pollution, weed invasion etc. on biodiversity must be better managed if this council is true to it word.

help us save them

Forgotten my password Hope it submits Just keep and save our local flora and fauna Make $$$$$$$developers go elsewhere to rape and pillage for their greed

Kick a greedy man in the nutsack

Definitely do this, spend your time doing the right thing returning bottles and cans, if they can be bothered to be open today. And if the fully automated system is stopped because they didn't think to plan to empty the stations, you can drive your bottles across town to the tip which is open a random 3 days a week. Try your luck today, drive your bottles all around town and back home. Because recycling is fun. I'll bet if council found themselves stuck inside a wet paper bag, they would have a hard time organizing a way out of it.
