Len Bates, Mullumbimby

We are all looking forward to the Talking Street Project in the main street of Mullumbimby. However, there are two really important projects that are needed in conjunction with this.

The first project is the urgent need for a large long-term car park in town. The ideal location for this is the Railway land in Prince Street on the right hand side as you come into town, opposite Carsburg Motors. This would allow parking before entering the town. Another area that needs to be set aside for parking is the Railway land around and to the south of the railway station. This will be needed for ‘park and ride’ when the light rail is operating.

The second project that is needed is the upgrade or rebuild of the public toilets in the CBD behind the NAB bank. These toilets are presently below any acceptable standard. Let’s hope Council will do these projects along with the development of the Talking Street.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

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.
