Laura Jones, Ocean Shores
Two years ago, Byron Council installed play equipment for our kids from the sale money from our Roundhouse land. This provided the beginning of a play space for more than 3,000 children in Ocean Shores.
Nearly $419,000 of funding was secured. Council has the grant money collecting interest in their bank account. Yet two years on the community doesn’t have shade sails over the fort to protect our children from the summer sun.
In March this year Ben Franklin congratulated the community for securing all stage-three funding for shade sails, wheelchair access, multi-level timber treehouse, flying fox etc.
Another six weeks of school holidays is coming up and Council still hasn’t installed shade sails over the fort.
You really should be ashamed of yourselves Council. You weren’t open and honest with the Ocean Shores community.
