About the project

The Mullumbimby Greenspine, is a priority recommendation from the Our Mullumbimby Masterplan, which aims to create a green boulevard on Stuart Street, from Heritage Park and the Brunswick River, through the town centre to the Mullumbimby Recreation Grounds and Community Gardens.

A section of Stuart Street, between Burringbar Street and Fern Street, is set for a significant upgrade thanks to Council's commitment to improving the condition of our roads and implementing actions from the Our Mullumbimby Masterplan and the Byron Shire Bike Plan.

The upgrade works, planned to be completed by mid 2021, will consist of:

  • an asphalt overlay to improve the road surface
  • improved road drainage
  • a defined on-road cycle way in each direction
  • landscaping and
  • car parking.

The works will be funded by Council collected developer contributions as well as State and Federal funding programs.

It is important to note that a design for the whole of Stuart Street will be developed so that the remaining sections of the Stuart Street Greenspine can be upgraded if funding becomes available in the future.

    • Condition of Road Surface: The section of Stuart Street between Fern Street and Burringbar Street is in a deteriorated condition with numerous potholes, drainage issues and poorly defined car parking spaces. The works required to improve this section of road have been identified by Council to be funded from the $25 million NSW Government Roads and Infrastructure Election Commitment.


    • Bike Paths: There are currently no bike paths on this section of Stuart Street. The Byron Shire Bike Plan recommends an on-road separated cycle path in each direction (refer Bike Plan action MU007).
