Has anyone spotted an echidna train around the Shire?Echidna breeding season has started! This will be the only time of the year (June-September) that you will see more than one echidna together out in the wild. Echidnas form these 'trains' where one female is followed by multiple males until she chooses one to mate with - these trains can last for weeks at a time!

This echidna train was spotted last breeding season so keep your eyes out and submit them to us if you are lucky enough to see one! 😍

You can submit echidna sightings through the EchidnaCSI app and visit our website for more info: buff.ly/2YSmbPW

Are there any plans for Byron pool? I would love for there to be an all year round option for kids swimming lessons. It’s so crucial for kids to be strong swimmers and I’m baffled that Byron doesn’t have an easy pool option considering the size of the primary school. All the options are a 30 min drive away. The fact that the Byron pool isn’t heated means it’s only good for kids lessons 3 months of the year.

And not one single FENCED dog park!

Heritage Park in Mullumbimby needs a lot of TLC, it's a disgrace. This is supposedly Mullums premium park according to the Recreational needs assessment. Neighbours are selling up and leaving the shire as they have had enough of the rough campers and noise that comes with them. Council staff are well aware of the problem but nothing changes. Can we get the boat ramp fixed so it can be used safely? What is the $20,000 allocated going to be use for? Hopefully clean up the excrement!

And not one single disabled access point for Belonging beach. Not One!

Bike lanes on Bangalow Road would be a great addition!
