Lost in acronyms

Chris Cooney, Mullumbimby

In the world of acronyms in which the local council exists, it is completely understandable that the civilian population could very easily become lost. Here are but a few: UGMS, BILS, LSPS, RLUS, LRMDC, SEPP, DPIE, NCRP, LEP, DCP and MHCA. The last one is the Mullumbimby Heritage Conservation Area which covers the older part of Mullumbimby township.

A recent effort in restoring/renovating one of the older houses has just happened. Rather than following the great Australian tradition of demolishing our history and bunging up a block of architecturally gormless flats/units/apartments, (under the pretence of affordable housing), this old house adds to the town’s character and story. So congratulations to the owner and the tradies for doing such a fine job.
