Mullum?s open to draft plan
A COMMUNITY open day will be held at Mullumbimby next month so residents can have their say on the Mullumbimby Civic Centre draft plan of management.
The area being considered for the plan encompasses eight parcels of land and community facilities, including the Civic Memorial Hall, former council chambers, CWA Hall, Cook Pioneer Cottage, War Widows' Cottage, Rural Fire Service and associated parkland.
Part of the plan's purpose is to determine opportunities and constraints in relation to the current facilities and services as well as identify future uses for the area.
Byron Shire Council has engaged local environmental management and design consultants, GeoLINK, to prepare a plan of management for the Mullumbimby City Centre precinct.
"This is a high profile area and community input is essential," GeoLINK Project Manager, Matthew Wood, said.
"The day is an opportunity to be informed on the plan's progress and for every voice to be heard on the planning of the precinct."
The open day will be held on the corner of Burringbar and Stuart streets from 9am-12pm on Saturday, December 11.
Community members unable to attend the open day can obtain more information by con- tacting Matthew Wood of GeoLINK on 66877666.
