Tweed Council to sponsor community events

With disasters like fires, floods and pandemics, still smouldering in our recent memory, Tweed Shire Council wants to know if you have an event that will help the Tweed community reconnect and celebrate after tough times?

I am a great believer in community input into Council business. A great opportunity for that is through Advisory Committees. Four of those have vacancies, and I encourage anyone with an opinion on the following areas, or with shareable expertise, to apply. You can do that up to the end of June at: www.byron.nsw.gov.au/Public-Notice/Nominate-to-join-a-Council-Advisory-Committee.

The Committees delve deeper than Councillors can and give advice to them on:

1. Biodiversity, 2. Coast & ICOLLs (Intermittently Closing and Opening Lake or Lagoon, like Belongil or Tallow creeks), 3. Water & Sewer, 4. Floodplains.

There are also vacancies on the Place Planning Collective, but applications close today 22 June. Try a late application: www.byron.nsw.gov.au/Community/Place-planning/Place-Planning-Collective.

Duncan Dey, Byron Shire Councillor


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.
