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