The Project Overview:
The township of Ocean Shores has the second largest population in Byron Shire and is still continuing to grow.
Yet after 35 years of development it still has not received its own sports fields.
(Long Overdue)

Lot 107 has already been purchased by Council for sports fields and is ready to be developed.
(Already Approved)

Lot 107 is situated just 1100 metres from the Ocean Shores Public School. The school has expressed support for the development of Lot 107 for sports facilities and regular inter-school events.
(Close to School Community)

Lot 107 is not only between the two Ocean Shores communities, it is also easily accessible by foot or bicycle for the residents of two other adjoining communities of South Golden Beach and New Brighton.
(Linked by informal Bike and Walkways)

Lot 107 is the ONLY parcel of land suitable for the affected community that can safely be accessed by the children of the area.
(Already cleared and ready for development)

Lot 107 due to its proximity to local communities, will reduce the number of cars and duration of travel time on local roads as children are transported to training sessions and sporting fixtures.
(Environmentally Sound)

Concern 1.
NOW the latest news is...

Byron Shire Council is negotiating with the RTA to purchase the sports fields Lot 107 as part of their "compensation package" for the NPWS to be included in their land portfolio.
Why does Council not want to develop Lot 107 ?

Concern 2.
The outrageous battle for our children's sports fields...

" The sale of Lot 107 at Ocean Shores is under a cloud after Byron Shire Council received a valuation rumoured to be double a Roads and Traffic Authority offer of $225,000." Full story click here
Why sell Lot 107 for $225,000 and buy another location at Yelgun
for 1.3million ? It does not make sense.

Interesting Point 3.
What does our NEW Premier have to say about LOT 107 ?
He states in a letter to Don Page Member for Ballina dated October 12, 2000 ...
" Lot 107 was mostly cleared and therefore has no potential as an environmental facility."
Why does Council want to protect a parcel of land with no environmental significance ?
