Tyagarah beach decision a win/win

Debra Conomy, Byron Naturists Group.

The Byron Naturists welcome the vote by Council on Thursday to re-affirm their previous decision to keep the Tyagarah clothing-optional beach and to implement further safety measures.

This process has been democratic. On TWO occasions a majority of Councillors have now been satisfied that progress is occurring at the beach and that further improvement is possible. Councillors came to their decision after consulting BOTH nearby residents AND beach users from the Shire.

The Byron Naturists believe cameras in the beach car park and a proper management mechanism are NOT a betrayal of locals but a WIN/WIN for everyone.

The Byron Naturists now want to work constructively with all parties to make the new measures successful.

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.”
