The politics of gentrification and ‘holding the line’

Who are the visionary architects and planners that will protect and enhance this ramshackle surf town’s social fabric and built environment of Byron Bay?

A Pimlico woman has been fined in Ballina Local Court for ‘actively recruiting’ a company to remove 200 tonnes of demolition waste from a Coles liquor outlet and store it on flood-affected land at a Pimlico property.

Ballina Local Court found on Friday that despite knowing she needed a permit to dispose of the waste Verna Wall failed to do so until she was caught by council officers.

Ms Wall was fined $7,500 and had costs awarded against her.

The company she hired, Chambers Constructions, was previously fined $6,000.
