What is your vision for Byron Bay? Do you see it as important to be able to drive your car with surfboard on top to the main beach to check out the waves? Perhaps you would prefer the main street and the beachfront to become pedestrian only with cars being kept out of town.
A panel of 22 community representatives wants to hear from you if you have a view on how Byron should move into the future.
‘We want the community to get engaged,’ said co-chair of the Byron Bay Town Centre Masterplan Team, Donald Maughan.
‘A key principle guiding the team’s work is “Walkability” – to establish well-designed, safe, and cycle -friendly pathways to create a sense of connectivity and flow between places and to ensure pedestrians have precedence over vehicles throughout the Byron Bay town centre,’ said the team in their recent press release.
The team has been meeting regularly since December 2016 and is keen to get projects that can be activated in the short, medium and longer terms.
