Community health and safety

Find information about emergencies such as bush fire, floods, COVID-19 and safety at home and in the community.

Our community safety work includes education campaigns, crime prevention, and designing public spaces to discourage anti-social behaviour. We partner with NSW Police, SES, RFS and other agencies and community to make the Byron Shire a safer place.

Our Community Safety Plan 

We are currently working on a new Community Safety Plan that explains the work we’re doing to create a safer community. You can read our previous plan below.
