Missing teen – Tweed Heads

Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a boy reported missing from Tweed Heads.

Deborah Lilly, Mullumbimby

Lot 22 is community land. I own it. You own it. We own it. It is THE COMMONS. I do not consent to The Commons being privatised. The SES have given irrefutable reasons why flooding precludes development. The Office of Environment and Heritage say Lot 22 contains freshwater wetland, subtropical coastal floodplain forest and potentially swamp sclerophyll forest because of its broadleaved paperbark trees.

Let’s preserve and protect our biodiversity and habitat. Affordable housing can go elsewhere but our wetlands and unique forests can’t.

Byron Shire Council is strapped for cash and want to sell it. I will pledge my support to restore this special place. When Gold Coast sprawl surrounds Mullumbimby, 22 hectares of open space, wetlands, and forest in its heart will provide succour from the bosom of Mother Nature.
