Byron Wildlife Hospital’s DA up for public comment

A development application for the mobile Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital is now before the public.

Wild weather continues to cut a swathe across north coast beaches, with serious erosion already reported at Evans Head and Yamba.

Further north, Byron Shire residents and visitors are being asked to take care on the beaches this week because of heavy swells and king tides.

The council’s executive manager of community infrastructure, Phil Holloway, said the weather conditions could see rough seas and heavy swells impacting on the coastline.

‘People are being asked to take notice of any beach signage as it may not be safe to swim, or beach access may not be possible,’ he said.

‘Staff will be out monitoring the coastline over the coming days,’ Mr Holloway said.

A severe weather warning has been issued by the Bureau of Meteorology and further updates and information are available on the SES website at http://www.ses.nsw.gov.au/.
