Byron council lobbies government on marine sanctuaries

Mar 25, 2014In the media

Byron Shire councillors resolved last Thursday, on the basis of a mayoral minute, to write to state government leaders expressing their concern over the current review of the NSW Marine Estate.

The letter will ask the recipients to recognise the ‘enormous benefits’ that the Cape Byron Marine Park and sanctuaries provide to local economies and businesses in the Byron Shire; and to accept a statement on the environmental benefits by 222 marine scientists.
