Call for new members for Byron Masterplan Guidance Group

Byron Shire Council is looking for passionate members of the Byron Bay community to join the town’s Masterplan Guidance Group.

Expressions of Interest for membership are now open with up to four positions to be filled.

The Byron Masterplan Guidance Group is made up of 22 members who represent the diverse community of Byron Bay.

The group works alongside the Council to guide the future form, look and feel of the town centre on projects such as the redevelopment of Railway Park.

“Being a part of the Guidance Group is a terrific opportunity for passionate community members to contribute to shaping what Byron Bay will look like in the future,” Byron Shire Mayor, Simon Richardson, said.

“You only have to look at the Railway Park redevelopment to see how important the Guidance Group is because the success of that project came down to the way the group shaped a space that is now proudly regarded as the heart of Byron Bay.

“The Guidance Group works closely with staff and Councillors allowing us to make sure that our plans, projects, concepts, designs and ideas accurately reflect what the community wants to see in its town,” Mayor Richardson said.

Key projects for the Byron Masterplan Guidance Group over the next 12 months include:

  • Restoration of the Byron rail corridor
  • Upgrade designs for the Main Beach foreshore
  • Creation of the Sandhills skate park and recreation hub

Expressions of interest are open until Friday 18 September 2020.
