Attempt to manage Byron’s fragile coastline impeded by State Government, report finds

Insufficient funding and guidance from the State Government is inhibiting Byron Council's attempt to effectively manage its famous but fragile coastline, a Council report has revealed.

One of the main bridges between Main Arm and Mullumbimby has been restored, after a section was washed away in the recent floods.

Located before the Main Arm general store, the work by Council road crews took just over seven weeks.

Council said in a press release last week, ‘Getting rock was a huge challenge for us, and we must thank our contractors and the ADF who helped make this happen’.

‘And of course, the Council staff who pulled this project together!’

Council staff are reminding visitors to stay away from the hinterland as the road network is still flood-damaged.

‘It’s not the time to visit national parks or check out the flood damage’.
