Goonellabah drive-thru COVID testing this weekend at GSAC

With the community in lockdown, Lismore City Council says it is important for to get tested for COVID-19, even if you only have the mildest of symptoms. 

Max and Beverly Joffe, Wilsons Creek

Each week, there are articles and letters in The Echo, in which community members express disappointment in Council for allowing or enabling inappropriate development in the Byron Shire.

So, it’s fair to pose a question to Council, about the 3Rs. In other words, how does Council demonstrate being respectful, responsive, and responsible? Particularly in relation to valid concerns and requests from people, who have a high regard for the landscape, flora, fauna and waterways in this beautiful environment, in which they live?

We join others in protesting inappropriate subdivisions, overdevelopment and any form or profiteering. It should be about nature and wellbeing; not about dollars for developers. In this instance, to be clear, we strongly object to any intention of subdivision of Alidenes Road.
