Agritourism policy forced upon LGAs

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) has ignored Byron Shire Council’s urgent request to delay the forced adoption of the NSW government’s agritourism policy. The policy came into effect last week in all local government areas (LGAs).

There has been a break in the water supply in Lennox Head along Ballina Street, Lennox Head between Park Lane and The Lennox Hotel is unavailable due to a water main break that occurred this morning.

‘We ask that residents please refrain from using water at this time. Ballina Shire Council’s Water and Wastewater team will make every effort to resolve this matter as quickly as possible,’ said a Ballina Shire Council spokesperson. 

‘The water is not expected to be returned until after 1pm. At this stage, it appears the water outage is impacting properties on Ballina Street, Lennox Head.

‘Council apologises for the inconvenience.’

During this outage remember these pointers:

  • During any water disruption it’s important to leave your taps off as the water may return at any time.
  • When water returns it may be discoloured. This is due to sediment. Please run the tap until your water runs clear.
  • Your water may appear milky. This is caused by small air bubbles. Don’t be alarmed it is not harmful, and will settle in a short period.

 

If you have any enquiries in regard to this matter please contact council’s Water and Wastewater Section on 1300 864 444.
