Parking signs are currently being erected in Mullumbimby as part of a council’s revised parking management scheme that includes a change to parking times in Brunswick Heads, Bangalow and Mullumbimby.

The parking restrictions will then come into effect on Monday 26 March.

‘Increased visitation by locals and visitors and limited car parking spaces has driven the need for a different approach to parking management in our townships,’ Council’s Director of Infrastructure, Phil Holloway said.

‘Once these new parking schemes are in place, we will be monitoring and reviewing their effectiveness and reporting the results back to Council by June 2019.’

The new parking schemes do not affect Pay Parking or the use of E-Permits in any way.

Council’s compliance officers will be active across the Shire in coming weeks to inform and educate people about the new time restrictions.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
