SHOULD nudists be banned from this North Coast beach? Or do you support the continuation of the “clothes optional” situation?
It comes as Byron Shire Council gears to assess a notice of motion to revoke the clothing-option at the north Byron shire beach at its next meeting.
In recent months, the beach has become a hotspot for sexual assaults and other crimes with police increasing patrols in the area.
Councillor Jeanette Martin said she interpreted Cr Paul Spooner’s the motion not as attack against nudist bathing but rather an attempt to stamp out anti-social behaviour.
“Paul is trying to find a way to deal with the situation,” Cr Martin said.
She said she wasn’t decided on whether to vote for or against the motion.
Cr Allan Hunter said he would vote for the motion if an alternative solution to help quell anti-social behaviour at the beach can’t be determined.
