Festival/Byron Council relations strained, motion passes

The operations manager of the Byron Music Festival says her attempts to run the event this year were cruelled by Byron Council staff, who allegedly provided organisers with false information and spoke to them like they were ‘idiots’.

A new Catchment Action Plan for the northern rivers will set priorities for investment in natural-resource management projects over the next decade right across our region.

There is an opportunity for public comment via a series of public consultation sessions during October. Submissions will also be accepted online and in writing to the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority.

Residents and landowners, and anyone interested in the future management of our natural resources, are invited to find out more about the draft plan, which will be on public exhibition from October 15 to November 9. It can be viewed or downloaded at yoursay.northern.cma.nsw.gov.au from October 15.

Two meetings will take place on Thursday October 25: Bangalow RSL Hall at 10am and Kyogle Memorial Hall at 1.30pm. There will be a 5.30pm meeting at Murwillumbah Civic Centre on Monday October 29.

The meetings will be presented by the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority in conjunction with Richmond Landcare, Brunswick Valley Landcare, Tweed Landcare and Northern Landcare Support Services.

 


Support The Echo

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.
