Chamber?s jobs plan



Byron Shire council's retail strategy, the availability of industrial land and the match between the needs of employers and people looking for work are on the agenda for the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber president Beverly Norton is keen to work with council and will have a planning day next month involv- ing council staff, community representatives and chamber members.

"We want to create employment so that people who live here can be employed," she said.

"There are 700 businesses in the 2482 post code area, and we want to find out what businesses need, to make them successful.

Tourism is also on the list of commercial activities to be assisted.

Over the holiday period, the Mullumbimby Tourist Information Centre filled Macca's camping ground at Main Arm, and the Mullumbimby showground.

"We need to do something for tourism in town," she said.
