Court considers Tallowood Main Arm plans up before Council This Thursday Council will consider the first of three development applications currently active for residential subdivisions at Main Arm. The Main Arm Residents Association (MARA) comments: ‘Councillors approved proposals to rezone these lands in Main Arm back in 2007. They were assured of compliance with the award winning Byron Rural Settlement Strategy (BRSS). The developers offered a community park and amenities, an environmental education facility and a way of upgrading the deadly single-lane causeway leading into the village of Main Arm. ‘There was to be a state-of-the-art centralised wastewater system that would serve the new dwellings and resolve the Village’s historical sewage problems as well.

of upgrading the causeway out of his own pocket? Council staff recommend that Davis do the upgrade using his Section 94 contributions. These should go to defined shirewide facilities, to the whole community’s benefit rather than being localised to facilitate the development itself. This week’s report to Council highlights to just what degree Council planners are prepared to believe whatever is said by the developer’s consultants. Davis doesn’t use the consultants who made all the original promises. A key consultant now is Sydney-based Martens who represented Woolworths in their successful Land & Environment Court quash of Council and have thus brought Mullumbimby its “sewer on a bog”.

Smaller buffers ‘For example, Martens is claiming buffers to permanent waterways are as effective at ten to 15 metres as they are at the standard 100m required of the rest of us, and staff is agreeing with him. Another consultant Josh Davis wrote the report on soil contamination (Historical Landuse Study). At the same time a parallel report commissioned by MARA from Black Earth Services has been completely ignored. ‘Council planners’ reliance for critical information on reports produced by the developer’s consultants and their ignoring professional assessments offered in submissions on the DA is indicative of poor planning on their part. Just how much development can Main Arm realistically sustain before the environment is harmed and the amenity of Main Arm is destroyed? ‘The community is not opposed to a reasonable level of development that genuinely complies with Council strategies and guidelines and is in tune with the character of Main Arm village and its surroundings.’ ■ Letters, page 12

Green assessor scheme goes sour Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Thousands of Australians have seen a good thing go sour when they signed up for a new green opportunity in the workplace. Last year the Rudd government introduced the Green Loans Scheme to reduce energy use and the resulting carbon footprint of Australian homes and at the same time to create green jobs. To be eligible for the loan, the householder would need a Home Sustainability Assessment which would analyse the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy use and suggest steps to improve the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumption. For this Green Loans program Home Sustainability Assessors (HSA), were being trained to assess the planned 360,000 homes in the given timeframe of around 2-3 years. This is where things went pearshaped. By October last year about 1,500 had been trained, probably enough to complete the job but instead of putting an immediate stop to the training intake, the Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and Arts (DEWHA) and the assessor accrediting organisation, the Association of Building Sustainability Assessors (ABSA), decided to close all future training by December 24, 2009, enough time for anyone who was remotely qualified to train assessors to offer last-minute courses. With training, insurance, registration and other costs, each assessor shelled out close to $3,500 and by Christmas there were about 10,000 assessors in the pipeline. The original 1,500 assessors might have hoped to gain up to two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work from the program, a figure that now averages out to a few weeks. Add to this the fact that there are larger product-based companies who are grabbing bulk

quantities of the assessment bookings, and what was a new hope for many has become a financial loss â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not only for the first 1,500 but for the remainder, some of whom are still yet to complete their training. A group of local HsA braved the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extreme weather conditions to try to salvage what they could from the aftermath and to look at options for further employment, Juergen Klein was one of the original intake of assessors who has been left out of pocket because of the scheme. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Like many other unfortunate locals, I trained for this new profession,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Juergen. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I spent upwards of $3,000 on course fees, insurance, required registration fee with ABSA and some equipment to perform the assessments. Personally I have not recovered my costs yet. As it looks now, all these promising â&#x20AC;&#x153;new careersâ&#x20AC;? will come to an abrupt halt in the very near future, adding 10,000 newly unemployed Home Sustainability Assessors to the Centrelink queue.

chances in Laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marginal seats and unless immediate action is taken to place more money into the scheme as well as regulating using a quota system, there may be up to 10,000 people out of work. The sad thing is that it was all so easily avoidable.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The frustration of everybody involved is increasing every day,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Juergen. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;For some people this means a real hardship since being assessor was to be their only means to make a living. We had been promised a career for at least two years. Mine hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lasted one month.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

New sustainable streets sought Byron Shire Council is searching for new streets to join the Sustainable Streets program. The Sustainable Street program is a Byron and Tweed Shire Council joint initiative which encourages residents in the same locality to come together and identify practical ways to reduce their environmental footprint. Byron Shire Sustainability Officer Graeme Williams said the program offers residents practical ways to restore local biodiversity, improve household water and energy efficiency, as well as organic gardening and ethical shopping workshops. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Other benefits include the social aspect of getting to know your neighbour which is often lost in our busy day-today lives.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Byron Shire currently has two streets in Mullumbimby, New City Road and Stuart Street. already participating in the program.

EDO runs roadshow on climate change options The Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) Northern Rivers office is embarking on a climate law roadshow up the north coast in early February to discuss the legal options for the world and Australia after Copenhagen. For instance, EDO Education Officer Mark Byrne explains that the Copenhagen Accord creates a conundrum for the Rudd governmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme legislation, which is due to go before parliament for the third time in February. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;For all its faults, the Copen-

hagen Accord did see major polluters agree to hold the increase in global temperature below two degrees Celsius,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; explains Mark. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If they follow through, this would be a major achievement. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Australian governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unconditional target is for a five per cent reduction in emissions by 2020 relative to the 1990 level. However, to meet our commitment under the Accord, Australia would probably need to cut emissions by at least 25 per cent by 2020.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This is just one of the issues to

be discussed at the EDO seminars, which will feature EDO policy officer Robert Ghanem, who was in Copenhagen for the summit and will also speak on the prospects now for a binding global agreement. Mark Byrne will discuss the implications of the Copenhagen outcome for Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed CPRS, and the alternatives put forward by the Coalition and the Greens. EDO Senior Solicitor Sue Higginson will also discuss recent and current court cases involving attempts to limit carbon emissions and the

successes and failures in the courts of climate change protest actions. The seminars will be held at Ballina on Wednesday February 10, Richmond Room, Regatta Ave, 5.45pm for 6pm, and at Murwillumbah on Thursday February 11, CWA Hall, 20 Queen St, 5.45pm for 6 pm sharp. Light refreshments provided. No booking necessary. EDO says: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Please note that the science supporting anthropogenic climate change will not be discussed at these seminars.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Martin wins award for biochar project Mullumbimby Community Garden coordinator Jeannette Martin has won a $10,000 British Council Big Green Idea funding initiative for a biochar project. The project, near the Brunswick Valley Historical Museum, will feature an onsite integrated green waste management facility utilising a biochar kiln and organic compost, which she sees as a powerful tool for educating the community on the importance of soil management as part of the solution to climate change.

Jeannette plans to engage a group of young people to build the biochar kiln and manage a composting program that utilises food waste from local restaurants and garden waste from local households and the community garden. An outreach program of quarterly workshops will build knowledge and skills surrounding the practical applications of biochar and compost, and consolidate this with the environmental benefits of growing organic food. From a total pool of 87 appli-

cants from around Australia, the five winners took part in a rigorous selection process with the British Council. Offered for the first time in 2009, the Big Green Idea initiative called for applications from eco-entrepreneurs with savvy ideas addressing sustainability challenges faced by urban communities. Funding will be offered again in 2010. For more information visit www.biggreenidea.com.au, email info@biggreenidea.com. au or call 02 9362 2022.

Heavy downpour cuts local roads

Tallowood before court From front page

Mr Eddie concluded, ‘We don’t need to provide a master plan if developing in stages, but any future stages must be consistent with the concept plan.’ The Echo went to press as residents began giving their evidence. There were to be about 16 residents to present to the Court. Some residents giving evidence such as Brendan Healey, president of the Mullumbimby Creek Progress Association, and Pat Skene, Coral Avenue resident, have been concerned and vocal about development on the land parcel since 1997 at least. Mr Healey told The Echo, ‘I will be giving a historical perspective on the development, reminding the Court that this has been a long-term concern for residents. ‘We are hugely concerned by the lack of a master plan,

and the absence of community consultation. ‘We are hoping that through our evidence being heard the Freemans will be asked to comply to some of community’s processes and Byron Shire Council’s adaptations, because at the moment they are trying to gazump the lot.’ Bush regenerator Dave Rawlins, said, ‘I will be giving evidence on the ecological significance of this area. Landcare has been working for years on several projects to create a wildlife corridor through here. I am asking that there is at the very least a plan for conserving the ecological value of this land, not this ad hoc, piece by piece proposal.’ Council refused the DA for the intial stage on various grounds on November 12 last year. The developers had gone to court earlier under ‘deemed refusal’ provisions.

Heavy downpours on Saturday night led to the closure of several roads across Byron Shire and to the rescue of a pregnant women by local SES officers. Both Mullumbimby and Byron Bay received totals exceeding 200mm over the night. A mother-to-be was stranded at Upper Wilsons Creek by the flooding. When the SES was

alerted, they sought the assistance of the Rural Fire Service and its 4WD truck. In the truck, fire officers were able to negotiate the flooded causeways, pick up the woman, and later transfer her to a waiting ambulance. In related rescue news, the Northern Region Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter just

flew 44 missions in January – the busiest January ever, and the second busiest month on record. The only busier month recorded was May 1988 when the region was hit by two floods. Those 44 missions were made up of 26 ‘Primary’ missions, 16 ‘Secondary’ missions (inter-hospital transfers) and

two ‘SAR’ (search and rescue) missions. In addition to the 44 missions flown, an additional ten flights were conducted for pilot, crew and medical staff training. At an average cost of $5,000 per mission, it cost about $220,000 to do the 44 January missions. See more at www. helirescue.com.au.

Cobbers Child Care Centre owner operators Tim and Sharon Wearne have brought learning about the environment and resource conservation one step earlier in childhood development. The centre has installed water saving push button and lever taps at all the sinks used by the children and has also recently installed water saving toilet cisterns and two rain water tanks. Tim, who is a qualified early childhood teacher, provides an extensive preschool program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his specialty is teaching children the skills that they need in readiness for school and saving water is another of Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lessons. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In July 2009 we received approval to increase the number of places available for children from 28 to 36 each day,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Tim. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To gain this approval we created a second playground with a sandpit and grassed area. We also installed the special taps and other water saving devices.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tim says that another function of the push button and

Pregnant women needed for cleft palate research A Southern Cross University researcher is investigating a new theory linking cleft lip and palate disorders with nutritional deficiencies caused by stress shortly before or during the early stages of pregnancy. Nutritionist and PhD candidate Graeme Wallace, pictured, first saw the correlation between stress suffered during early pregnancy and cleft lip and palate disorders while working in the Philippines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a country with one of the highest incidences of the disorder. Mr Wallace would like to hear from any women living in the Byron Bay area who may be carrying a baby that has been diagnosed with the condition, but also mums who are carrying a baby who does not have the condition. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Initially this research project aimed to consider the possibility of other causal factors of these disorders, such as alco-

hol and drug use, or a motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smoking habits if any, and nutritional supplementation taken prior to and during the pregnancy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Wallace said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;However, even at an early stage in the study, stress seemed to be a possible issue of relevance and this led to us considering other work that

had already been done linking clefting to stress.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Wallace found, for instance, that studies in both Czechoslovakia and Iraq had found a strong correlation between cleft lip and palate disorders and the stress levels of pregnant women. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stress, be it physical (such

as from injury or nutrient deficiencies) or emotional, will lead to changes in the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internal functioning. This physiological process is also known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;oxidative stressâ&#x20AC;?,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. Mr Wallace is seeking 50 pregnant women who have been diagnosed as carrying a foetus with a cleft who would like to participate in his research project. He is also seeking 50 pregnant women who are not carrying a foetus with a known cleft anomaly, for comparison. For more information or to register your interest in participating in the project, please contact Graeme Wallace on 0418 248 983 or email him at graemew@bigpond.net.au. The research project is being partly funded through a grant of $80,000 from Healthscope, a leading Australian private pathology laboratory.

Letters Farewell Kevin Kirk On behalf of the Bundjalung of Byron Bay Aboriginal Corporation we wish to express our sincere thanks to all the rescue team, police and public for the support in trying to locate our dear relative Mr Kevin Kirk who through the love of dog walking went missing in the month of January. Kevin Kirk was the father to Douglas Kirk, brother to the Arakwal family in Byron Bay and will be dearly missed. Kevin was a strong-minded man who kept to himself a lot, but had the love of walking dogs through any weather. A memorial will take place in Brunswick Heads this week for family and friends before he is taken to Melbourne to be laid to rest with his wife Nancy Kay. Thank you all. Yvonne Stewart

Mapping weeds People in the Shire may not be aware that the Far North Coast County Council trading as Far North Coast Weeds (FNCW) are currently ‘mapping’ this shire for noxious weeds. I discovered this while walking my dog down our lane where I came across a huge truck with lots of spraying equipment on board. There are plenty of issues to discuss about spraying weeds, and the classification of camphor as ‘noxious’, but I wanted to let organic farmers and chemically-sensitive residents know that they urgently need to get themselves onto the FNCW ‘Sensitive Register’ if you want to be notified prior to spraying. If you want to know about FNCW notification obligations about spraying you can

download their Pesticide Use Notification Plan from www. fncw.nsw.gov.au. Anyone interested in the toxic effects of glyphosate herbicides should have a look at the latest publication from the Pesticides Action Network which compiles all the latest scientific studies on the health and environmental impacts of this herbicide about to sprayed all over the shire – see www. panap.net.

Community focus Cr Tucker’s claim that the recommendations of the Community Consultation Focus Group (CCFG) were ‘by and large... successfully taken up by Council’ at the December 17 meeting last year (Saturday Star, January 10) is possibly the best spin I have heard since I became a Councillor. Readers may recall that the CCFG was established by Council with representation from community groups across the shire and given the task of designing a community consultation strategy for when the draft Local Environment Plan (LEP) eventually goes on exhibition. The recommendations of the CCFG are set out in the Community Consultation Strategy as developed over a period of six months with assistance from an independent facilitator and Council staff. Cr Tucker would have you believe that his successful motion adopted these recommendations. Not so. The wording of Cr Tucker’s amendment was so heavily qualified as to make it a meaningless statement. The qualification is ‘that Council adopt in principle, the intent of the strategy’. As the intention of the strategy was to consult

Kitesurfing dangers at a busy beach Warning signs need to be placed now at Byron Bay’s Main Beach. ‘BEWARE! Your child’s life is in danger on this beach.’ Another child’s life was seriously endangered last week at Main Beach. This 9 year old child was not surfing, he was walking in kneedeep water with his father. I was in shock when I saw my friend’s child with a scar across his throat. This time the accident was caused by an experienced kitesurfer (kiteboarder) who sailed up behind them in the calm, shallow water. An unexpected gust of wind blew the sail out of control, and it flew over the child with the powerful cable slashing across his neck. Fortunately, his father was able to grab the rigging before it cut through the child’s throat.

I feel strongly that, if the father had not been with his child, this boy would have been killed by the sail’s 500 kilo breaking strain rigging. Two years ago I wrote a series of letters forewarning about the serious danger of allowing kiteboarding at Byron’s highly populated Main Beach. I am shocked that kiteboarders are still allowed to surf at this family beach. Why does the Byron Shire Council allow these kiteboarders to sail in this bay, either at Main Beach or The Pass, which is overpopulated with surfers, children playing in the calm waters and people walking everywhere next to the water? Both children and adults are in danger from these sailing vehicles. Just tune into YouTube ‘kiteboarder beach accidents’ and you can see for yourself.

the community, the resolution is reduced to an ‘in principle’ statement that Council will consult the community. This is a long way short of adopting the detailed strategy set out by the CCFG. Why is this important? The current LEP adopted in 1988 is Council’s paramount planning document and sets out the land use zones and rules for how development occurs in the shire. Clearly then, the draft LEP once adopted will have a major influence on the future character of the shire over many years, if not decades. Unless there is quality consultation about the draft LEP, it is unlikely that residents will be able to make meaningful submissions with the result that patterns of future development may be locked in that do not fit with the community’s

expectations as to what constitutes appropriate or sustainable development. I appreciate that Councillors were possibly not at their peak having debated this item nine hours after the meeting started. However I am hopeful that with the benefit of the summer break, they will stand up for real community consultation and vote for my Notice of Motion to adopt the Strategy at this week’s meeting.

why you gave the child $100 for the damage to his neck? What would you have given for his death? The resulting lawsuit would answer that. There are so many isolated beaches in the Byron Shire. Why would you sail among the people and endanger their lives? The pristine waters of Byron Bay is an attractive playground for families, but does anyone care about their personal safety? Does anyone care about the welfare of a child? I asked this question two years ago – the answer is quite obvious.

Council’s normal excuse is that they have no jurisdiction over the waters. My answer to Council is that, if you have the authority to ban dogs from walking on the beach, then you also have the authority to ban kiteboarders from walking across the beach to get to the water. Also, I ask this kiteboarder, why were you sailing in this populated bay? A State maritime law states that a kiteboarder is not allowed to sail within 60 metres of any other person, including other surfers. There is a reason for this law, and you experienced it last week.

Main Arm development back on the Council agenda Council will be deciding this week on the future of Main Arm, on their vote for the Davis DA for 21 lots for the south side of the hamlet. As there are two other DAs (ReGenesis and Boyd Warren) also currently being assessed by Council for another 37 houses and a commercial/shopping centre, Councillors need to look at the big picture, not just the impact of this one alone. The proposed land for the Davis development is highly constrained with eight of the proposed 13 rural CT lots being very steep, and all eight of the proposed village lots located on Council GIS-identified floodprone land surrounded on three sides by either the Brunswick River or Blindmouth Creek. The Byron Rural Settlement Strategy specifically excluded such lands from rural settlement. Council’s own onsite wastewater guidelines state that onsite systems should not be on steep slopes or near the waterways to prevent water pollution. Onsite systems are planned as close as 25 metres from the waterways, and

Council staff even stated that failure of these systems could pollute the Brunswick River. Traffic on the already dangerous, substandard access roads is estimated to increase by over 50% from the three DAs, yet there are no plans to upgrade the roads for the increase in traffic. The safety and lives of residents will be at much greater risk. Virtually the entire Main Arm community has been strongly opposed to the scale of these developments that would more than treble the population, ruin the rural character of the area with suburban style developments, and come with a great and permanent loss of amenity. I urge all Councillors to refuse this DA in its current form. Perhaps a smaller development with far less houses would be acceptable, and have less impact on the community. Please save Main Arm and the Shire from an environmental and social disaster.

homes’ and went on to state that the Land & Environment Court had found in favour of John Vaughan and had issued a judgement which made various orders against Council. This is crap. There was no judgement and there were no findings, for

that doesn’t look to me to be accidental when you consider the consistent Greens-bashing of this newspaper over the last year. Said article was headed ‘Byron loses fight over sea-front

■ After reading the upcoming (Thursday’s) Council meeting agenda many issues remain with the proposed developments. Many of the concerns raised by MARA and many others in their submissions have been sidestepped by Council planning staff with the very real issues not addressed. Overdevelopment of the village site, flooding access to the CT, wastewater management/drainage and traffic reports which don’t account for the eventual increases if the other (Regenesis CT and Village, and Boyd Warren proposals) are sucessful before Council. These proposals need to be viewed in their totality to see the huge effect they will have on this quiet rural hamlet. These developments will impact all those living along The Pocket and Main Arm Roads as well as Main Arm Village. Additionally the health of the Brunswick River if the onsite wastewater systems which are too close to watercourses fail or Guy Fisher are overloaded in wet periods Main Arm or floods.

the simple reason that the parties elected to settle the matter rather than proceed to a court ruling. What happens in such cases is that the parties draw up an agreement, which the judge then ratifies with a set of ‘or-

Council staff are going to let the developer not only bear the cost but actually organise the construction of the new causeway before the village. This seems a very unusual situation as Council’s dedicated bridge crews generally handle this type of work. Council engineers are to supervise but will the high standards presently achieved by in-house Council staff be maintained by indepentent contractors who are mainly concerned with making a profit? Will Council’s excellent outdoor staff be sidelined more often in this manner or eventually dispensed with? What happens to all that accumulated skill and expertise? Council is allowing this bridge upgrade to consume all the developers’ Section 94 contributions needed for other purposes such as the other road improvements necessary and additional strains on infrastructure. While the development should shoulder this cost the other issues need a contribution as well. The Main Arm Residents

Association hopes that all concerned residents of Main Arm, The Pocket and surrounding areas will come to the upcoming meeting and let Councillors know their concerns. Additionally residents of other areas of the Shire threatened by BRSS and CT development should come along before the hinterland is covered in houses.

ders’. The Australian perhaps didn’t attend the hearing and made wrong assumptions based on the orders. A charitable interpretation. Mr Vaughan didn’t ‘win’ the case at law or on a matter of principle and when a case is settled in this way the legal issues remain unresolved. Accordingly any suggestion that the Vaughan case sets a legal precedent is nonsense. Seems to me that Byron United in their historical glee over the outcome are playing with themselves. Fair enough to suggest that the Greens ‘backed down’, maybe. But then there has been a significant change in the circumstances since the case was filed: the state government has signalled its intention to change the rules re the rights of beachfront landowners. With that in mind I addressed the Council in public access late last year and suggested that they discontinue the case as pointless. Whether it was the Greens that made the offer to settle, or Council’s insurers buckling under the pressure I don’t know, but either way it’s a victory for common sense. Byron United has suggested that somehow this common sense is grounds for the Council to be sacked by the state government! If anything shows them to be wankers it is the idea that a desperate Labor government would alienate Greens preferences in this way. This is the stuff of fantasy. Now the Australian newspaper has given the Greens a consistent pasting over this issue and Jan Barham has come out looking quite pathetic. Seems to me she desperately needs the services of a full time press of-

ficer. Oh dear, we already have one of those, I think… No, I must be wrong; it must be Byron United for whom this person is working, based on outcomes at least.

Blindmouth ■ Iconic Main Arm, as we know

and love it, is about to be lost if our Councillors allow Council planners to have their way. The Davis DA, the first of three Main Arm development proposals, comes before Council this Thursday. Put together, this will see 56 new houses encircling the 10 house hamlet of Main Arm. Council planners have recommended approval of the Davis DA. They have deemed in their report to Council that the DA is ‘generally compliant’ with Council policies and planning laws, not withstanding that there are 102 instances of non-

Holiday letting We have received numerous emails from residents in Byron Bay and other areas in support of our efforts to help maintain the year-round peace and quiet that we are all entitled to. We would like to encourage other residents to form their own group in preparation for Easter holidays. For example, we are currently in communication with the HLO to encourage them to enforce their own policies, such as screening tenants, and no partying. We have also notified the Council about offensive noise and disturbances caused by irresponsible holiday letters over ‘Schoolies’, and the Christmas/New Year period. If you would like more information or to contact us, email enough2481@gmail.com. Yvonne Jessup

compliance regarding the Davis proposals for 21 Lots. For example, contrary to BSC guidelines, ten lots are within the 100 metre buffer zones between house and waterways, including five in the 25-40 metres range. Eight lots will be built on floodprone land, eight lots built on slopes greater than 20%, 20 lots will have inadequate disposal areas for waste etc etc. How ‘generally compliant’ do developers need to be these days in order to have their developments approved? And why are Council planners so reliant on the developer’s consultants as their source of information when compiling staff reports to Council? So much for BSC award winning Biodiversity strategy, if in 2010 a developer can be given approval to build a suburban style subdivsion with individual wastewater systems on boggy land right on top of the Main Arm of the Brunswick River.

The Upper Pocket did the vital purification kits. The donations are destined for the Middle East Children’s Alliance and/or UNICEF but Israel is currently blocking delivery of a French water purification unit bound for Gaza despite the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs warning that Israel’s 23-day blitzkrieg on Gaza one year ago has led to the virtual collapse of the sewage system which will result in contaminated ground water. Half the 1.5 million inhabitants of the Gaza Strip are children and these are the most vulnerable. The French government summoned Israel’s ambassador to explain why the system was denied access but his explanation ‘was not satisfactory’, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Eric Chevalier. I will be writing to Mr Yuval Rotem, Israel’s ambassador to Australia, Prime Minister Rudd and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon asking them to assure delivery of the purification kits we purchase.

Consent order clarifies coastal protection responsibilities ers’ pockets can be calculated accordingly in regard to future consent disputes. The good news for Council’s insurers is that once the above works have been done, ‘the Council be released from its undertakings as to damages’. Of course both sides are trying to put the best light on the court outcome. John Vaughan told the ABC he feels vindicated by the court’s decision. He said it will benefit all those who live in the area. ‘It’s not just my beachfront property, it’s all Belongil owners,’ Mr Vaughan said. Council’s general manager Graeme Faulkner said in a press release Council does not consider the agreement reached undermines the long

The kerfuffle over who is allowed to do what at the Belongil beachfront came to a head recently when the NSW Land and Environment Court gave a consent order in the case between John and Anne Vaughan and Byron Shire Council. It defines what property owners are allowed to do to protect their land and sets out Council’s responsibilities in assisting them. No doubt it will be added to the vast heap of legal material being accumulated about Australia’s coastline. It’s a shame paper won’t hold back the sea. The court order declares that a development consent given to Mr Vaughan by Council on Geobags in place at Belongil after the May 2009 storm. Photo Jeff Dawson November 8, 2001, is valid and ‘provides for interim beach stabilisation works’. It declares that the Vaughans are entitled to maintain and repair the ex- In federal parliament last week Senaman who thinks – and we know what he isting geobag revetment and tor Bob Brown asked climate change thinks of climate change – and I will come sand nourishment behind it minister Penny Wong about the Belongil back to that later – to the same height as the May court case and its possible consequences. 2009 storm event.

Who picks up the tab for coastal erosion?

High seas According to barrister Tony Bannon SC’s submission to the court on behalf of the Vaughans, Mr Vaughan had appealed to Council in late May 2009 to maintain the interim protection works, which were part of the 2001 approval, when high seas began to overtop the geobags. When there was no response the Vaughans informed Council they proposed to stabilise the dune with rock ‘riprap’ so repairs could be undertaken. ‘The only rocks ever placed on the beach were placed to provide necessary access to the area to enable reconstruction of the geobag wall,’ the submission goes on. ‘When the Vaughans offered to remove them, the Council requested that they stay to enable the Council safely to protect the

Senator WONG – … I am aware of the decision of the Land and Environment Court. Obviously that is a New South Wales jurisdiction, but the senator would be aware that the Australian government is extremely concerned to ensure that we assist local government to gain an understanding of the risks of climate change. We released last year, as you may recall, a study into potential sea level rises as a result of climate change to enable different levels of government to better work together on a better knowledge base to plan for the future. The reality is that those opposite are now led by a

Manfred Street site.’ In any case, whatever the purpose of the rocks – or the works Council was required to fulfil under the 2001 consent – Council sought an injunction against the Vaughans undertaking further activity, and that has resulted in the recent consent order which reconfirms the original consent.

department we have also presented the national coastal risk assessment, which will assist, has assisted and is assisting local governments to better understand the risks. To be absolutely frank, can I say to the senator that this is an area that requires all levels of government to work together.

ment now face in payouts to people who built within the threatened zone?

Senator BOB BROWN – Mr President, I ask a further supplementary question. My question was directly about the cost. Is the Commonwealth going to leave local government to bear, totally by itself, the multibillion dollar tab from the erosion of Australia’s coastlines, which threatens up to 700,000 properties this century?

Senator WONG – As the senator would be aware, this is an issue that the government is very aware of… What the senator is asking about is really one of the manifestations of the costs of climate change. We know that climate change will affect, and is already affecting, our economy and our environment. We know that the Australian coasts are also under significant pressure. Certainly in my colleague Minister Garrett’s portfolio there is funding through the Caring for Coasts election commitment and, as I said, through my

Senator WONG – Again, what I say is that this is an example of why this nation has to act on climate change – because we know that the costs of failing to act are far greater than the costs of responsible action now. That was once the policy of the Liberal Party of Australia… It was once the policy of a number of the senators opposite who are now interjecting. I wonder why they do protest so much – because they know they have released a policy today which is nothing more than a climate con job.

Under the consent order, Council is also ordered to maintain the existing geobag revetment on its land and complete ASAP but no later than March 31 the ‘reestablishment of the sand behind the existing geobag revetment along the Manfred Street site in accordance with the terms of the development consent

including re-establishing the dune behind the whole length of the existing geobag revetment along the Manfred Street site to the height and shape of the dune prior to the May 2009 storm event…’. This does not necessarily mean the May 2009 storm event has become the default measure for beach protection and the hole in ratepay-

term strategy of ‘planned retreat’, but reaffirms that works not already the subject of an existing consent must be notified to Council and approval obtained before commencing. ‘The development consent at Manfred Street is valid until such time as Byron Shire Council has in place a long term management strategy such as

a Coastal Zone Management Plan,’ Mr Faulkner said. Mr Faulkner also said that defence of this claim was undertaken on Council’s behalf by its insurers, Council having subrogated its rights. Accordingly, the legal costs associated with the claim have been met by Council’s insurers, not ratepayers. But while Mr Faulkner has been reported as saying costs associated with the case before the insurer took over came to $12,500 in an insurance excess, Council’s legal status report on matters current at June 30, 2009, shows costs of $281,423 for the case. As to third parties, the Byron Preservation Association, which seems to be a reincarnation of the Belongil Progress Association, called in its usual high-pitched manner for Council to be sacked in the wake of the consent order. ‘This decision is good news for Byron Shire residents, business owners and visitors to the Shire – and it also means that the protected wetlands will be preserved,’ said BPA President Geoff Tauber.

‘Great expense’ ‘But this long-running, politically motivated campaign by Council, involving a lengthy and groundless legal battle, has been conducted at great expense to the Shire’s ratepayers and has been undertaken without their consent. The state government should sack the Council and ask the Ombudsman to hold an inquiry into whether Council’s conduct was lawful.’ Mr Tauber said that it was the Council’s own construction works at Main Beach that had hastened the erosion problems at Belongil and increased the risk of flooding to the township and adjacent wetlands. He said that Council spent ‘huge sums’ on the case before their insurers took the matter over in July 2009. ‘In conducting this frivolous campaign Byron Shire Council has neglected to represent its own people and put the needs of this township first,’ Mr Tauber said. Greens senator Bob Brown raised the matter in Parliament in relation to national climate change policy – see box.

DJ Aphrodite at Liquid this Thursday APHRODITE produced the first drumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;bass record I bought in 2000. Gavin Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career in DJing and producing had already spanned over six years by then and he went on to become â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Godfather of Jungleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;King of the Beatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. APHRODITE moved millions of drumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;bass fans from Shanghai to Rio, UK to USA, Sydney to Cape town, Moscow to South Korea while his name became synonymous with fast broken beats.

Q: Who inspires you? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Artists from loads of different musical areas. Techno-wise, Ricardo Villalobos is a major influenceâ&#x20AC;Ś But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more into IDM and rock, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a huge fan of things like Radiohead, Plaid, Boards of Canada, Bjork, Michael Jackson, Alva Noto, Monolakeâ&#x20AC;Ś In terms of ideas a big figure for me is John Cageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q: How would you describe your style?

dismissive of Fanny, allowing for Campion to fire a quiet but not unexpected feminist shot across the bow. Even with his sleaziness and bluster, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to not grow close to him and Paul Schneider nails a tricky role without you noticing. Campion has created a thing of lasting beauty, for which she can finally be forgiven for The Piano. As icing on the cake, go home and read La Belle Dame Sans Merci. Heartbreaking. ~ John Campbell

Up In The Air Could I have had the wool pulled over my eyes by enjoying this film so much? Ryan (George Clooney) works for a company that hires him out to fly from one city to the next, where he fires employees whose bosses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the gumption to do it themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;your position is no longer availableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, he smoothly and compassionately advises them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel their pain, he is aware of it but he just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his job and he does it as the ultimate professional, loving the lifestyle of hotels, hire cars and business class perks. Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charm lies is his honesty and Clooney, who has more sense than to attempt self-effacement, is an actor polished enough to seduce you with the depth of his characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veneer. He meets Alex (Vera Farmiga) over martinis in a platinum-card waiting lounge and they hit it off as a pair of perfectly fitting narcissists, squeezing in bonking sessions when their itineraries intersect. Upsetting the applecart is Natalie (Anna Kendrick), a bright, preppy thing who convinces Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supervisor of the cost saving benefits of on-line dismissals. Kendrick goes close to upstaging Clooney with a wonderful performance as the energetic but gauche tyro (she reminded me throughout of Margene in SBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Love), and for a while things threaten to get edgy as director Jason Reitman poses as social commentator on the human cost of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial crisis. When Ryan invites Alex to accompany him to Wisconsin for his younger sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding the movie drifts back into the more familiar and potentially soppy realm of the standard rom-com. Taking the privileged,

Based on the much-loved story by Roald Dahl, this childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story is a larger than life fantasy for all ages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; showcasing the voice talents of a pack of stars, led by George Clooney as the likeably roguish Mr. Fox. Like most animal characters in fiction, he has recognisably human traitsâ&#x20AC;Ś and failings. Meryl Streep voices Mrs. Fox in a perfectly pitched blend of loving wife and knowing woman and the entire supporting cast is spot on. Bill Murray endears us to the badger, while Willem Dafoe is a dirty rat on security duty for the farmers. The film plays like an adventure, but director Wes Anderson has ensured there is enough attention to character and to detail to make it all absolutely absorbing and entertaining. The puppetry is superb, the settings are interesting and the humour is infectious. ~ Lounge Cinema

detached hedonist back home to his roots is one of Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most reliable devices and, cheesy though it is, it never fails. Ryan connects with other folks and realises that he has fallen for Alex. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a neatly filmed segment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; succinct, rosy and unlabored â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it dilutes what might have been a more challenging story. Witty and wholly engaging, with cleverly veiled resolutions, Up In The Air lacks the warmth of Reitmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Juno. More slick than sophisticated, it owes its success to the interplay between the leads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Jason Bateman as Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calculating boss. Knowing that many of the cut-away interviews are with real people who, unscripted, talk about getting the sack leaves a bad taste in the mouth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trite way to earn a best picture nomination and you can bet you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any of them on the red carpet come the night of the Oscars. ~ John Campbell www.dendy.com.au

Fanny Brawne, 18, met the poet John Keats, 21, when he lived next door to her in Hampstead with his fellow writer and benefactor Charles Brown. Their brief but allâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;consuming love is the subject of Jane Campionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rapturous film. Period pieces such as this (it is 1818, shortly after Mister Darcyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s combative wooing of Miss Elizabeth Bennet) can flatter to deceive, there sometimes being no more to them than handsome sets and a parade of beauties in closely studied bonnets and empire line frocks. Not here. Abbie Cornish, who appears to have filled out somewhat, is a revelation as the bright star. Fanny, a seamstress, is an artist in her own right and she knows it, even though others are only able to acknowledge her talent by patronising it. As the instigator of the romance, she is independent and enquiring, but also dutiful and constrained by the mores of the time. Cornish owns the movie with a performance of grace, subtlety and the deepest emotional resonances. As for Ben Whilshire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if Keats wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a dead ringer for him he should have been. Palely loitering and looking as though in a later age heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be playing guitar with the Kinks, he only rarely approaches fey clichĂŠ. Which in itself is an unfair criticism, for the image of the nineteenth century romantic poet has been nurtured and gratefully received by dreamers for generations. Happily, Campion has no postmodern mission to shatter it. And, with nary a torn bodice nor a seductive letting down of Fannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tightly combed chignon, it is tremendously sexy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the loversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kisses and letters are more erotically charged than any number of the humpings that make grubby voyeurs of us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what a darling scene it is when Toots, Fannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little sister, stops in her tracks when she comes upon the pair smooching in a meadow. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so natural. Kerry Fox is splendid as the mother who frets for her daughter, realising that Keatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poverty will forever stand in the way of their marriage, while the male counterweight is Brown. Devoted to his more talented friend, he is

A TASTE OF HARMONY A Taste of Harmony is Australia’s biggest celebration of cultural diversity at work, starting on March 15 and ending with National Harmony Day on March 21. An initiative of the Scanlon Foundation and supported by both the Australian Multicultural Foundation and the Department of Immigration and Citizenship,

it constitutes a competition entitled ‘Win A Chef’ which is open to all workplaces and which consists of colleagues bringing into work a lunch dish, on a set date, reflecting their cultural background. Each workplace must be registered at www.tasteofharmony. org.au and submit in 25 words or less a response to ‘What do you think are the key ingredients in celebrating cultural diversity in your workplace?’ The winning workplace will receive a visit and a cooking masterclass by one of Australia’s top chefs, Miguel Maestre, from El Toro Loco in Manly (and star of television shows Miguel’s Tropical Kitchen and Boys’ Weekend), culminating in a taste of his culinary creations. Almost 10,000 workers from NSW participated in ‘A Taste of Harmony’ last year. It’s a great way to have a multicultural feast at work and learn something about the different cultures existing in your workplace. Registration for the event is free but must be done by March 1. For more information on the competition call 1800 077 067 or visit www. tasteofharmony.org.au

Victoria Cosford

BYRON BAY

I have always privately felt that the world could be fairly neatly divided up into teadrinkers and coffee-drinkers. Of course it is a gross over-simplification and generalisation, subject to overlaps and fashion – and yet, based on my own experience, it seems that there are those who love coffee and rarely drink tea and those whose days could almost be measured by the frequency of their tea rituals. People in this category are always ‘putting the kettle on’ to mark an event or a pause; my own two sisters love nothing more than a mug of fairly milky tea at various intervals throughout the day. Whereas I am most definitely a coffee person, who might drink tea a handful of times a year only. I do not dislike tea at all – on the contrary I am aware that there are teas and there are teas and I have indeed at times admired a particular type or brew. Having recently, however, been taken on a little tour around a tea plantation has subtly shifted my attitude. Just outside of Murwillumbah are the rolling green hills which constitute Madura. The word ‘madura’ means ‘place of paradise’ in the Tamil language, marketing and public relations manager Ray Fien tells me. Ray, large and warmly avuncular, has been working at Madura for seven years, having come from a 25-year position with Coles. He explains that Madura is a family company run by four couples and employing over 50 locals. Operating since the 1970s, it has only been over the last seven years – as long as Ray has been there – that it has stepped up its commitment to ensuring a minimal environmental impact. Madura’s teas were named amongst the cleanest sold in Australia by Choice magazine, and the company has been recognised nationally for its sustainable approach to packaging and waste minimisation, its practices including re-using cardboard for mulch, the use and management of glue and fuel efficiency for farm machinery. Ray rescues me from the sun and guides me through the factory where hi-tech Italian equipment is filling 450 teabags a minute: oxygen-bleached filter bags utilising no staples. The tea that generally goes into tea-bags is known as ‘fannings’ or ‘dust’ and is the waste product produced from the sorting of higher quality loose-leaf tea – in

the case of Madura, however, the smallest leaf particles are used. The farm employs very few pesticides, and no insecticides at all. Water is regularly tested for chemical residue, with samples sent off every year to the Queensland Health Scientific Services. Back outside we stand in the shade, and Ray points out some rudiments of tea-growing. All around us is green lushness, gently undulating hills and dales across 55 acres. Only the top one to two inches of the mature tea plant – both buds and leaves, called ‘flushes’ – are picked. A plant will grow a new flush every seven to ten days during the growing season. Cultivated plants are pruned to waist-height for ease of plucking. Of the two principal varieties used, Madura’s is the large-leafed Assam type. Tea is traditionally classified based on the techniques with which it is produced and processed – and so, for example, black tea is wilted and fully oxidised, which also means that it contains fewer catechins (a type of antioxidant) than green and white teas, neither of which are oxidised. White tea is the healthiest type of all; green is less processed than black. Blending enables an almost endless range of scented and flavoured variants – for example, bergamot which perfumes Earl Grey. I have so loved my visit: tea makes much more sense. And while I may never actually go over to the other side, convert to a fully-fledged tea drinker, I am now aware of possibilities previously unimagined, and plan to explore them. Madura Tea Estates is at 753 Clothiers Creek Road, Murwillumbah – and absolutely worth a trip!

Our gift to the citizens of the Bay Horatio Bitemark Our enjoyment of croquet at Miss Cynthia B Sidebottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beachside residence was somewhat hampered when the front half of her lawn fell into the Pacific, swallowing up the canapes and her chef, Gaston Biftek, imported especially for the event from Paris. Fortunately Tosser Digby, noted for his exploits with the cliff divers of Acapulco, managed to rescue the chap but not, alas, the canapes. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Terrible show,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I murmured as I patted Miss Sidebottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrist in consolation. Miss Sidebottom dabbed her eyes with a lace handkerchief, sighed, and put on a brave face. Sanders the butler coughed discreetly beside me. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sir might remember the islands,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said, sotto voce. Sanders was right, as usual. You may recall, gentle reader, that I had earlier recounted our purchase of the nation state of Tuvalu post Copenhagen. It was an agreement of mutual benefit, and the hoisting of the islands onto pontoons had saved the nation from a tiresome inundation.

the time: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Its horrors are certain to entertain generations.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) Beppo also became home to the lesser-spotted planigale and a refuge for the terns plagued by uncontrolled dogs on the mainland. We took a whip-round the chaps and had Miss Sidebottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front lawn restored and resumed the croquet tournament. As is our wont, all great sporting occasions are accompanied by lunch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or in the case of night badminton, supper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Monsieur Biftek was only too happy with the second chance to prove his credentials, and prove them he did. We began with Fussbudget of Nightingale in an Ague of Capon, followed by Terrine Ă&#x2030;tonnement, and concluded with the Crepes Angleterre smothered in a Contusion of Blueberries and Creme Fraiche. Miss Sidebottomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health we toasted in the 1997

Later in the afternoon, her cheeks flushed with excitement and perhaps a trifle too much cherry brandy, Miss Sidebottom approached me, trilling, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh Mr Bitemark, this is all too wonderful!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She then proceeded to plant an appreciative peck on my cheek. It warms the heart of the ancient rouĂŠ when the young so indulge us. Incidentally, Digby would have won the croquet had not Abbotsleigh fallen asleep at the seventh hoop. We adjudged it too bothersome to move him, even after Sanders had volunteered to set up a block-andtackle, so we adjourned for coffee instead.

Negotiations with the traditional owners proved fruitful and we had one of the smaller islands surplus to requirements towed into Byron Bay by the SS Fortitude, which had earlier assisted Barnaby Chokehold move his assets to an offshore account when the tax office began nipping at his heels. The island, which we named Beppo after one of Lord Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poetic fabrications, just as the Julians had been, served admirably as a protective reef and provided local surfers with workable breaks. (Incidentally, Lord Byron was known to augment the supply of opium to the Lake Geneva chapter of the Club, around about the time Miss Mary Godwin was penning Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, at the Villa Diodati. One of the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chaps wrote of Prometheus in the day book of

Last week’s solution

Mungo’s Crossword first published in The Week.

TAURUS: In a Tiger year people suffer depending how pliable or resistant they are to change, but by now you’ve had plenty of practice rolling with the punches. A year of thunderous events, in which Tauran fortitude and determination will steer you through the eye of the storm. GEMINI: The best Gemini operating blueprint for 2010 is to stay alert for opportunities and take advantage of all circumstances, no matter how adverse. Though don’t shoot yourself in the foot by being too impulsive – and always have an alternative plan B up your sleeve.

The Eastern zodiac traditionally associates the Year of the Metal Tiger with social upheaval and massive change, making 2010 a volatile year on the world stage as well as up close and personal. Beginning this Sunday on Valentine’s Day, it’s a year to remember love is all you need… CANCER: Oriental interpreters say metal and Tiger together always fight – picture a Tiger in a suit of armour. But Crabs quite like armour and this year definitely puts a tiger in your tank – just as well, because it appears that 2010 comes neither quietly nor peacefully. LEO: Magnificent, powerful, feared, respected, clever, courageous – little wonder Eastern astrologers consider Tiger the king of beasts. This year of the Big Striped Pussycat finds you riding the wild tiger with everyone else – and fortunately with good recuperative powers because it really is a killer year. VIRGO: Yours may be one of this year’s happier matches with Virgo controlling Tiger’s rash urges while the jungle hunter’s audacity has dazzling effects on the normally reserved Virgo. It’s a trying time for tranquility though, with criticism triggering spectacularly volatile reactions – just so you know.

The Magnus Carlsen era has well and truly begun. Over the past four months the Norwegian teenager (pictured) has won elite tournaments in Nanjing, London and, last week, Wijk aan Zee in the Netherlands. Add to this a second place in the Tal Memorial, a win of the World Lightning (five minute) Championship (both in Moscow) plus Carlsen’s rise to become the youngest ever world number one on January 1, and it is clear that the Force is indeed with Carlsen.

CAPRICORN: Metal Tiger year can attract cash, but the colour representing metal is white and many Chinese astrologers consider the White Tiger year jinxed. Change is definitely on its way and this unpredictable year screams for caution – where Capricorns are concerned that’s your health department.

LIBRA: One of the Tiger year’s qualities is procrastination, so making decisions doesn’t get any easier this year. Though when you do make up your mind what you want, chances of achieving it are better than average during this bold, go-forit period. SCORPIO: Dramatic and dynamic as its markings, Tiger’s a natural predator and rebel and its year strengthens these already formidable Scorpionic qualities for ambitious projects or protesting against society’s wrongs. But living dangerously can lead to big trouble this year, so proceed very very carefully… SAGITTARIUS: You’ll need all your street smarts and negotiating skills to survive this uninhibited, unconventional Tiger year, because others are touchy and reactive – offending the wrong person could have you looking at a lawsuit. But keep your impatient nature under control and it’s possible to prosper.

I was talking to a couple of blokes in the pub the other day. They were obviously old mates and when I asked them how they knew each other, one of them said that they had played soccer together as kids. During the course of the conversation it came out that they also lived in the same street, went to the same school and their mothers knew each other long before either of them was born, but to these fellows, their friendship stemmed from the time they spent in the same football club.

which stimulates memory and reasoning skills. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s th the actual physical requirements which promote fitness and discipline. Also there is the nessessity to share the limelight and not â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hog the ballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which teaches children about working together with another group of humans for the benefit of the collective and not the individual, in other words: community spirit. Team sport also creates the opportunity for kids to learn to be competitive without being aggressive and to take pride in themselves, their team and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievements, which again promotes self esteem and a sense of belonging. Even being part of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wooden spoonersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; can give children a feeling of not being alone when everything doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go the way they want it to.

The Jim Beam Surftag National Series provides a national competition for boardriding clubs to compete against each other and to determine Australia’s No.1 Club. Surftag is Australia’s largest team surfing competition

and offers a prize pool of over $100,000 in cash and prizes. The Series is run under the popular tag team format with each club represented by five surfers. In relay style each surfer catches three waves and then returns to the beach to tag their team’s next surfer. Over the past eight years some interesting results have been recorded, North Narrabeen is the only team to have won back to back National Titles and Margaret River won four Western Australia Surftag events in a row only to finish runners up to Yallingup in 2007, 2008 and 2009. In their second year of Surftag South Australia’s Seaford Boardriders won the 2009 Victoria Surftag event and Snapper Rocks have won four of the eight Queensland Titles finishing runners up to rival club Kirra in 2009. Bronte Boardriders did not compete in 2008 but bounced back to claim victory at the 2009 New South Wales event, beating a record field of 38 teams. Lennox Ballina Boardriders Club will fly the local flag when they head south to Sydney for the Surftag Australian Championship this weekend. After finishing equal fifth in last month’s Queensland qualifying round behind winners Kirra, LeBa will take on the country’s best 24 Surftag teams

including powerhouses Margaret River, North Narrabeen and Snapper Rocks for the more than $40,000 on offer. LeBa have drawn Noosa, Western Australian club Yallingup and Sydney’s Avalon in the opening round and will have to finish top two in the heats to progress to the quarters finals. That is no easy task considering Noosa beat LeBa by finishing a strong second in the Queensland titles and Yallingup will be led by world number four Taj Burrow, but the LeBa squad will be strengthened too with world class surfers Adam Melling, Owen Wright and Stu Kennedy all likely to be available to join an already powerful squad that includes Marcus Aboody, James Wood, Sonny Russell, Dan Thompson and Jock Barnes. Club spokesperson Rod Steeles acknowledged that LeBa’s opening heat was a tough one but said it wasn’t something that would daunt the team. ‘We are not worried by any draw or who we have got because it’s the Australian finals, everyone feels good just to be there,’ said Steeles. ‘If you want to win you have got to beat some of the best teams along the way through anyway.’ While the final five surfers for the LeBa team may not be named until Saturday, Steeles is confident the club has the

Nick Colby, Tommy Boucat and Bryce Cameron also placed 2nd in their heats. The first wins for the BBB came on the Saturday with Jarrad Sullivan and Garrett Parkes winning their heats. Sunday the heats were stacked with talent, which saw all of the clubs bringing out their best surfers to secure a possible title. Shane Wehner and Luke Archibald took to the water for the BBB and both finished 3rd in their heats. BBB finished 13th out of 36 teams so a great effort from our surfers. A big thankyou goes out to all of the BBB members who went along to the event to support our clubs surfers, with special thanks to Lee Miller for a huge effort setting up each day.

The inaugural ARU Bangalow FNC Primary Schools Rugby Gala Day will be held on Friday 12 March at the Bangalow Sports Fields. The free event will cater for boys and girls in three age categories, Under 8s, Under 10s and Under 12s and will be played under the ARU rugby pathway guidelines. The Tournament is open to all North Coast Primary Schools, even those with little rugby experience. This will allow new schools to compete against and play alongside those with stronger rugby traditions in a fun, carnival atmosphere. The event builds on the

growing momentum for junior rugby around Bangalow that started with the creation of a single under 12 team just three years ago. Last year, Bangalow Junior Rugby ran on five teams and the Club hopes to field seven teams for the 2010 season in every age group from under 8 to under 15. More information about the Primary Schools Rugby Gala Day will be available shortly from schools throughout the Byron Shire. Sign on days for players wishing to join Bangalow Junior Rugby will be the 20th and 27th of February from 2.00pm to 4.00pm at the Bangalow Bowling Club, or on the adjacent field. For more information, contact David Phillips, President of Bangalow Junior Rugby on, 0412 080 614.

talent to go all the way. ‘We’ve had a good run the last few years, making finals and the like and this is our best team yet,’ he said. ‘We have a solid squad and we think we can do well.’ The event sees five-member teams given an hour in which each individual must catch three waves, with the second being a “Powerwave” worth double points. All three waves for each

surfer count in the scoring and bonus points are awarded for teams that finish before the 60 minute mark. Many of the world’s best will be on show in the event including world champion Mick Fanning, world number two Joel Parkinson, Taj Burrow, Dean Morrison, Mick Campbell, Chris Davidson and Kai Otton. LeBa will be represented in the Boardriders Cup by Dan Thompson.

has been his first open men’s representative competition. He has been an excellent teammate for Football Far North Coast Golden Boot winner Jordy Campbell of Byron Bay. The football combinations the boys developed playing at the Rams have been invaluable with their Futsal. Jordy has been an unstoppable goal scoring machine all through the competition. The Dragons men’s team amassed an unbelievable average of eight goals per game over the summer to totally outclass the other regional teams.

The players and their regional team manager Rick Knight couldn’t contain their excitement and pride winning the Northern NSW TURSA Cup. The win was even sweeter when the women’s Lismore Dragons regional team also won their Grand Final at the brilliant, brand new Yamba indoor sports complex in a close tussle.

all guns blazing. However the Dragons traded goal for goal through the match and had to fight hard to secure a 7-6 win and a berth straight into the Grand Final. The Grand Final was full of nervous tension and Port Macquarie was leading the Dragons 3-1 at half time, but two quick goals shortly after the break evened the score, putting fire back into the Dragons. Then they never looked back scoring another 5 and finally defeating Port Macquarie 8-3 to take the TURSA Vikings cup back to Lismore. There’s no rest for the boys yet, with our regional team entered in the Pacific Regional tournament next week in Brisbane. They will get the chance to test their skills against some of the best teams in the Pacific region.

One treatment can be life changing. The Atlas supports your head and governs structural alignment. A misaligned Atlas causes restriction of the brain stem, spinal cord, cranial nerves and arteries. This limits our potential for wellbeing and creates tension, restricting the free flow of energy. When the Atlas is installed correctly, the body begins an unwinding process, releasing holding patterns and enabling the body to heal and regenerate.

To take a giant step towards your health and wellbeing, contact Sidika Ashauer, Brunswick Heads clinic. 0427 805 405 www.pain-free-me.com

This circumstance leads to a variety of physical and psychological ailments and illnesses. Atlasprofilax is a neuromuscular technique that liberates the Atlas with only one application Accurately, Safely and Permanently. This powerful relocation immediately activates a self-healing and harmonising process. It is holistic in nature, promoting wellness and rejuvenation on all levels, mind, body and spirit. This method is non-medical, non-chiropratic.

BIRTHDAYS

This beautiful girl is lost. She was found in the Byron shire, de-sexed and micro-chipped, but unfortunately the owners arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contactable. She is a tabby with white markings and approximately 18 months old. Her situation is very sad and we would dearly love someone to give her a home this week. She needs to be the only cat in the household as she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get on with other cats. She does love human contact and is a very loveable, affectionate and smoochy girl. She loves pats and cuddles and would make a caring person a loyal companion for life. It is breeding season, and undesexed cats, driven by uncontrollable hormones, are out roaming. If you have lost your cat, please phone the Byron Shire Rangers OfďŹ ce 6626 7000. Please make an appointment to meet them with Lesa on 0438 363 287 Billinudgel www.petsforlifeanimalshelter.org

Housing confidence at three year high A

survey has found the Global Financial Crisis is a distant memory for most Australians, who now believe the housing market is set to take off – again. ‘A surprising 73 per cent of respondents expect house prices to rise, which is the highest proportion for more than three years,’ said Phil Naylor, CEO, Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA). The MFAA/Bankwest Home Finance Index canvassed the opinion of 850 people on a range of issues relating to the economy and housing market.

‘Confidence in the housing market is not only pre-GFC – it’s back where it was during the height of the housing boom,’ Mr Naylor said. ‘But there are still some clouds on the horizon, with recent interest rate increases negatively impacting households,’ Mr Naylor said. Mr Naylor said that 15.9 per cent of respondents are struggling to meet repayments – which is up from only 11.7 per cent in May 2009. The survey found it was in the former boom state of Western Australia that most respondents claimed to be struggling in their repayments (25 per cent). The least number of people struggling to meet repayments was in NSW (20.6 per cent). Head of Mortgages at Bankwest, Dean Gillespie, said the survey revealed a reversal of fortunes in WA and NSW. ‘The survey suggests that Australia’s two-speed housing market is alive and well,’ Mr Gillespie said. ‘It would appear that when it comes to the housing market and perceptions of economic conditions, NSW is leading the charge for the first time in years.’ Mr Gillespie said that respondents were divided about whether it is a good time to buy a new home, with 49.7 per cent thinking it is a good time. ‘Respondents from Queensland (41.4 per cent) were the least likely to think now was a good time to

published in PRDnationwide’s Quarterly Economic & Property Report show business confidence has hit a seven year high and commodities prices look set to soar. The PRD-nationwide research director Aaron Maskrey said the report showed numbers of new dwellings increased in the third quarter by 21.2 per cent – or 6,439 new homes across Australia. ‘This increase is a much needed boost to ease pressures of housing across Australia,’ said Mr Maskrey. The median house price in In another report, an economic Australia climbed on average by and property snapshot produced by 11.6 per cent in November – the PRDnationwide reveals a healthy highest level in 2009. economy, increased numbers of new Darwin has recorded the biggest homes, but record debts. Figures increase of 17.91 per cent while buy, but South Australians were more optimistic with 63.6 per cent saying it was a good time to buy.’ Mr Gillespie said that when it comes to other cost of living pressures, borrowers said the cost of food was of greatest concern. ‘Over the last year there has been a reversal in burden of fuel versus food costs. People are saying that food prices are now taking a bigger bite out of the family budget,’ Mr Gillespie concluded.

A ‘healthy economy’

POPULATION PRESSURES And in welcoming the release of the federal government’s third Intergenerational Report (IGR), the Housing Industry Association (HIA) saw the report as ‘a timely reminder of the enormous challenges already faced by many other advanced economies and that will increasingly be faced by Australia’. The IGR addresses the big picture issues affecting Australia’s social and economic prosperity over the next 40 years focusing heavily on the impact that an ageing population has on key expenditure areas such as health, aged care and superannuation. HIA managing director Shane Goodwin said that an increase in the Australian population by 2050 to 35.9 million people would necessitate building 7.1 million new dwellings. ‘Such construction would represent a large increase over the building levels of the past 40 years and require annual building of over 30,000 dwellings per year in excess of 2009 levels.

Melbourne prices rose 16.97 per cent. Hobart remained the cheapest place to buy a home where the median price currently sits at $310,050. ‘Overall rental rates have fallen due to the increased level of home buyers. But with property prices continuing to climb and interest rates increasing, 2010 should see the rental market tighten with lower vacancy rates leading to higher weekly rents,’ said Mr Maskrey. Figures show mortgage, credit card and personal loan debts have hit $1.2 trillion – a record amount that has grown 71 per cent over the past five years. ‘This is the first time Australia has surpassed American levels of debt,’ said Mr Maskrey.

‘Constructing over seven million new dwellings over the next 40 years raises many serious social and economic challenges. Where will these dwellings be located? Will these dwellings be adequately serviced by appropriate amenities and infrastructure? Will these new dwellings be affordable and appropriate for a more environmentally concerned society? ‘The challenges described in the IGR require that housing policy be placed front and centre of government policy over the coming years. Current building levels fall well below that required by such strong population growth. ‘Failure to address Australia’s severe lack of housing will inevitably lead to further long term erosion in housing affordability and inadequate shelter provided to those most at risk. Land supply issues, high levels of taxation on new housing at all levels of government, and a slow and highly constrained building approvals process continue to stymie the building industry from providing an adequate level of new housing now, much less over the next 40 years.’
