Roads Capital Works 2016-17

Byron Shire Council acknowledges the deteriorating state of its chronically under-funded roads and the need to provide significant new funding towards the renewal of our infrastructure. During the term of this Council, we have been working hard to generate additional infrastructure funding through a range of means including:

  • Restructuring and reducing senior staff positions
  • Operating efficiencies
  • Property investment and sales
  • Debt reduction
  • More efficient procurement
  • Establishing an Infrastructure Renewal Reserve
  • Developing new revenue sources e.g. pay parking

Through its Financial Sustainability Plan Council has strengthened its financial position and is confident that it will remain a viable local government entity into the future and avoid the threat of amalgamation. You can read more about the plan at
