Push to create transitional accommodation at Lot 22

Should the Council-owned plot of land in Mullumbimby, known as Lot 22, be used for temporary accommodation for those at risk of homelessness, as a matter of urgency?

A meet-the-candidates forum for the Lismore City Council elections will be held at the Lismore Workers Club from 6.30pm on Wednesday, August 22.

The forum has been organised by the Lismore Community Action Network to give the community an opportunity to meet candidates from each of the 10 tickets and the one individual candidate, Peter Larsen.

The forum will be hosted by Lismore High School careers adviser, Bill Goldie.

After each presentation, the audience will be given an opportunity to ask questions of each speaker and will be given the opportunity to talk to candidates one to one over coffee.

‘The community needs to take care in choosing the candidates that best reflect their aspirations as there can be major differences in opinions on some of the important matters that affect our daily lives,’ Lismore CAN spokesperson Janine Wilson said.

Lismore CAN is a non-profit organisation without connection to any political party, which has an interest in good local governance that also maintains a watchful eye over council meetings and activities through a council watch arm of the group.
