Interview with The Buckleys

Sitting with The Buckleys, you know they are siblings. They have this natural ease and fluidity with each other. A lack of self-consciousness. A lot of love, but you also know they keep each other in check.

Paul Brennan, Brunswick Heads

The Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce maintains that paid parking in Brunswick Heads is not wanted. Have they conducted a survey of the permanent residents of the town?

I have been a permanent resident of Brunswick for six years, and I haven’t been canvassed on this issue. I have noticed the increased traffic that descends on the town every weekend and indeed throughout the week. I have noticed a large majority of the vehicles have Queensland number plates, and use the parking spots for hours at a time.

Residents have major problems finding a park. I would welcome paid parking. As Byron Shire residents and ratepayers we can hold a parking permit, and with paid parking we may get a park in town, close to the shops or businesses we want to visit.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
