BRACE to ramp up its noise fight



The Byron Bay lobby group, BRACE - Bay Residents Against Community Erosion - is to ramp up its fight against the impact on residents of houses in residential areas let to holidaymakers.

At its first meeting last Saturday, BRACE decided that preserving and enhancing residential amenity was important enough to warrant broader action.

The group plans to conduct a survey on the issue, probably late next month.

It says it hopes the results will support its efforts in lobbying State and local government to "uphold and enforce the current legislation prohibiting the practice of holiday letting in residential areas".

In response to residents' concerns, the tourism industry has set up a hotline to deal with complaints.
