Planning & Resources

The Tourism Management Plan (TMP) is Council’s 10-year strategy for managing tourism in Byron Shire. The TMP was adopted with the key objectives of promoting a sustainable approach to tourism which aligns with community values and expectations.

As part of Destination NSW processes Council also undertook a collaborative project with Destination Byron to establish a Destination Management Plan for Byron Shire.
