Councillors and staff will assemble today November 28 to debate and vote on a 712-page agenda. Two highlights are as follows:
Mayor Simon Richardson will seek councillor support for Council to ‘undertake an Investigation Report and Preferred Option Concept Design for a Brunswick Heads to Mullumbimby Cycleway’ at the upcoming meeting on Thursday November 28.
He says in the agenda (available on Council’s website) that, ‘A safe, well maintained and properly designed cycleway that links Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby would be a significant transport route in the Shire’.
With claims that bird breeding has declined substantially in recent years in Byron generally, Cr Cate Coorey has suggested that Council move to ‘urgently enact stricter dog compliance measures in bird breeding and hatching areas around the Tallow and Belongil Estuaries.’
She suggests, ‘committing increased ranger patrols, and enforcing compliance and fines against off-leash breaches.’
