Celebrating 35 years of The Echo

The Echo Awards, held every five years, was a great success on Wednesday night as it celebrated 35 years of local independent journalism in the Northern Rivers and the community that have supported it throughout those times.

Residents at the Lismore Tourist Caravan Park have been given an early Christmas present.

The long-term residents had been told they would have to vacate the park by November 12 – a little over a week away.

Lismore City Council voted earlier this year to close the park owing to its location on flood-prone land.

But despite its name, and a bylaw requiring that residents stay there no more than 150 days a year, the park has become a last refuge for low-income renters in a town with very little low-priced rental accommodation.

Earlier this year Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell said the council wouldn’t close the park if it meant making anyone homeless. But she added that housing support agencies needed a date to be able to work towards.

An agreement has now been reached at the Tenancy Tribunal to extend Ms Dowell’s deadline to January 18.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
