Byron’s new road: the good and not so

After more than 30 years of talk, debate, disagreements, tears and political gridlock, Byron Bay has a new road to divert traffic from the CBD to the southern end of town.

Robyn Lemaire, president, Murwillumbah Ratepayers and Resident Association Inc

The Murwillumbah Ratepayers and Residents Association would like to congratulate Council for the upgrades at Budd Park. The outcome so far has been appreciated. It was good to know that the monies of the local ratepayers were used in our local area. The changes have been an improvement, and we look forward to the new toilet block that was also assigned to the project.

We hope that the outcome at Newell Park will be as good. Development appears to be a bit piecemeal for our town, and we would appreciate a master plan that goes beyond the CBD.

The next meeting of the Murwillumbah Ratepayers and Resident Assoc will be on Monday April 15 from 7.30pm at the Autumn Club, Tumbulgum Road. All welcome. We are still working on pedestrian access through South Murwillumbah to the Art Gallery.

 


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.
