International Women’s Day kerfuffle at Ballina

One councillor walked out of Ballina Council's recent meeting during an emotional discussion about speakers at an upcoming IWD event.

The village of Tyalgum’s popular recreation reserve, which includes its sports oval, is set to be improved under a new management plan now on exhibition.

The 10.5-hectare reserve also includes a flora reserve, an informal camping area and public open space.

Submissions for the draft plan of management for the Tyalgum Public Recreation and Preservation of Native Flora and Fauna Reserve close on 9 August.

Deputy premier Andrew Stoner is urging the Tyalgum community to comment on the draft plan prepared by a community-based reserve trust board.

‘It provides the management framework to introduce improvements for future public use and enjoyment,’ Mr Stoner said.

Lismore MP Thomas George said the amenities ‘are quite basic and are in need of upgrading or eventual replacement’ and the trust proposed to establish a primitive camping ground there.

‘They have a number of ideas for improvements so I hope the community takes the opportunity to review the plan and have their say,’ Mr George said.

The plan may be viewed at www.crownland.nsw.gov.au or at Tweed Shire Council offices in the Murwillumbah Civic Centre, and at the Tyalgum Post Office.

Feedback on the plan can be emailed to [email protected] or posted to: Senior Manager Far North Coast, Crown Lands, PO Box 2815 Dangar NSW 2309.
