Have you checked out the new and improved Byron Visitor Centre yet?

The upgrades aim to share more of our history, heritage & culture with some 400 visitors who enter the building dailly.

“It’s about providing some depth and meaning for our visitors and enhancing their experience and understanding of the Byron Shire and I think the centre’s refurbishment goes a long way to helping us achieve these aims,” Mayor Simon Richardson said.

AND it's a win for locals and rate payers too!

We now have space for a Council Customer Service member to be at the desk, so if you need information, would like to pay rates, renew your pay parking and more - you can do this without coming to Mullumbimby for general enquiries and transactions.

Oh and there is even more good news...

- All the artwork, design and building materials were sourced locally and built by local tradespeople.
- The centre is staff largely by local volunteers, who happen to all be legends.
- Nothing on this project was sent to landfill, everything was reused, recycled and rehomed.

CLEARING FOR NEW BAYSHORE DRIVE ROUNDABOUT

Contractors are expected to start clearing vegetation, including trees, tomorrow (Wednesday 23 May) as part of the construction of the new Bayshore Drive roundabout on Ewingsdale Rd at Byron Bay.

This work has been detailed in a Review of Environmental Factors and care is being taken to make sure the removal of any tree is absolutely necessary.

A total of 102 trees will be removed and to compensate Council will be planting 725 native trees.

Many trees and other native species will be replanted near the new roundabout.

A numbers of koala food trees will also be planted but we are waiting for advice from a qualified consultant regarding the best location for these trees.

Council understands the preservation of trees is of extreme importance to the community and the compensatory planting of 725 trees will complement exisiting vegetation and will provide long-term benefits to koalas in the Byron Shire as well.

I'm more concerned that we'll need to construct a Koala flyover Ewingsdale road next..

Bye bye to the shade and beauty for the next 15 years! 😭 Too Much tree cutting happening this year!

I'd rather see the trees for Koalas planted way away from Ewingsdale Rd. I've already removed a dead Koala from the road near SAE. We shouldn't be encouraging them near the road at all.

What are koalas going to do while they wait for the new trees to grow??

Traffic lights. MUCH better idea.
