Council study of camp site

Byron Council has moved a step closer to providing a site at Mullumbimby where homeless people can stay without being harassed.


On the motion of Cr Patrick Morrissey, the council last week voted to do a feasibility study into turning council-owned land referred to as Island Paddock north of the corner of Station and Mill Streets into a camping ground for the homeless.


Cr Morrissey said homelessness was a long-term issue that the council had constantly tried to address. A report on the issue is due to be tabled at the council’s first meeting next year and $5000 is to be allocated for water and sewerage infrastructure at the proposed camp site.
