Just wanting to thank the councillors who showed responsibility in attempting to meet the requests of the majority of locals to close down the dangerous and anti social environment that has been occurring for years at Tyagarah Beach.
Councillors Hackett and Spooner’s letters in the recent Echo was spot on.
That the so called ‘naturists’ consider themselves custodians of a public beach is simply delusional when in reality what they really want is a de facto private nudist beach.
Shame on the councillors who refused to acknowledge the sexual assaults and fears of woman at Tyagarah Beach and nature reserve.
That the majority of women on Council were dismissive of the harassment of local women is disgusting and beggars belief.
What other locality in Byron Shire would accept their local park, reserve, sporting ground or whatever being repeatedly subject to lewd and dangerous behaviour and accept that Council has ignored their concerns?
If local nudists and the Queenslanders who travel 100’s of kilometres to swim naked are so desperate, perhaps council could accommodate them on a beach near a police station?
