Byron’s much-loved Massinger Street treehouse could be saved from demolition under a motion to be voted on at Byron Shire Council’s upcoming meeting on April 19.
The timber and corrugated-iron structure has long been a popular spot both for local kids and curious passers-by, many of whom stop to take pictures.
But the unofficial caretaker of the house, local resident Mel Coppin, was told by Council last year that it was an unauthorised development and an insurance liability and would have to be removed.
Labor councillor Paul Spooner has proposed a notice of motion for the next council meeting that would see the treehouse preserved.
The motion proposes that Ms Coppin obtain public liability insurance.
