Councillor Duncan Dey

Duncan is a grandparent and has lived in Main Arm, 10km west of Mullumbimby, since 1994.  He is a chartered Civil Engineer specialising in hydrology and has worked in aid projects in Mozambique, PNG and Timor-Leste.  He served two years on Byron Council 2002-2004.

In the 1990s he campaigned for the protection of the Brunswick River and in the 2000s to expose Woolworths’ rough-shod arrival in Mullumbimby.  He is very proud of The Greens’ four pillars of (i) ecological sustainability, (ii) social equity & economic justice, (iii) grassroots democracy, and (iv) peace, disarmament & non-violence.

He looks forward to serving the community again with a view to preserving our natural environment; improving Council operations and increasing community input to them; lifting the load off small developments and shifting it to big ones; completing the new Local Environmental Plan and getting to know the new NSW Planning Legislation.

Some Shire issues that Duncan will pursue on Council are:

  • good governance & better outcomes on tasks like road maintenance;
  • using Council’s Management Plan & Budget to monitor and improve its performance;
  •  making the Planning system as fair as possible;
  •  promoting music and reducing the impacts of mega-festivals;
  •  sorting out coastal erosion and holiday letting.
