Constitutional referendum/poll for LG elections for Byron Shire?

Is the wards fight back again? Byron Shire Council staff have advised, in the upcoming agenda, that ‘Council may conduct a Constitutional referendum or poll in conjunction with the Local Government Election, to be held in September 2021’.

The Liquor and Gaming Authority will be holding a public conference to hear public comments on the packaged liquor licence (bottle shop) application by Woolworths, owners of Dan Murphy’s.

The corporation has applied to transfer an existing licence from Sydney to shop 11–20, 108 Jonson Street, Byron Bay (beneath Dendy cinemas).

It will be held Tuesday 4 September from 3pm at the Byron Bay Community Centre, but seating is limited and registration is required.

To secure a place, call Mr Troy Bell on 02 9995 0355 or email [email protected].

Registrations close Wednesday 29 August.
