Chambers join forces

A joint meeting of Byron Shire chambers of commerce on Monday agreed there should be greater co-operation between them and other groups.

It was the first time all six chambers – Bangalow, Mullumbimby, Ocean Shores, Brunswick Heads, Byron Bay and the Byron Bay Arts and Industry Park - had got to together to discuss common issues and their shared interests and concerns.

High on the agenda was tourism, which they said was by far the shire’s biggest income generator and employer.

They said that with such a huge impact on the shire’s economy, the need for an effective tourism management plan was paramount.
