Council to hear call for renewed stand against coal seam gas

BYRON Shire Council will consider a motion from Councillor Basil Cameron for the council to restate its opposition to CSG mining in the shire at next Thursday's meeting.

The motion would also see the council preparing a submission to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure supporting the community's desire for shire-wide CSG exclusion zones.

Cr Paul Spooner will also move that council reconvene a project reference group to develop a draft Vibrant Byron Bay Strategy aimed at promoting a vibrant, safe night life in Byron Bay for both residents and visitors.

The council will also look at a report recommending the allocating of $60,000 from the Environmental Levy - Community Infrastructure Maintenance Program.

This is to remove a portion of the partially collapsed Bangalow weir and return Byron Creek to natural water flow conditions.

The report also recommends that a section of the broken wall is placed in the adjacent park with a plaque attached in recognition of the heritage value of the weir and pool.
