I do the ‘lighthouse walk’ (up through the forest, down by the cliffs) often and note that this walk will be closed for the next month because of toxic spraying of bitou bush.
I don’t know how much this taxpayer funded program will cost but it is inevitably expensive.
Meanwhile, the fence on the narrow, sometimes congested, footpath on the cliff between the Pass and Wategos remains unrepaired and in some places non-existent and most definitely an ‘accident waiting to happen’.
Just now, I have seen a mother looking after the smallest of her three boys on this path while the other two ran ahead, spaced out and seemingly unaware that one mis-step would result in a tragic, unnecessary death.
It is time for Byron Shire Council, in conjunction with the NSW Parks Authority, to get the funds and repair this fence immediately as well as getting concerned about bitou bush.
