A community advisory committee will be established by Byron Council to provide input on the Ewingsdale multipurpose facility.

A media spokesperson for Council said of the resolution: ‘The group will include three community representatives: one from the Byron Catchment Community, Sporting and Recreation Working Group, and two from the wider Byron Shire community.

‘Council will write to the Working Group seeking a nomination, while advertising for the two other places. The committee’s role will be to provide input to centre management. But ultimately, the centre will be run by the party appointed to do that job by council.’

And while the issue of centre management remains unresolved, the good news in that the council remains in discussions with several interested parties.

Council’s spokesperson added that discussions regarding centre management won’t have a bearing on the opening date.

‘In the meantime, staff have been appointed to ensure the multipurpose facility can be opened to the community once a schedule has been negotiated that balances the needs of the more than 30 groups who have expressed a desire to use the facility.’
