A Byron Shire councillor wants the NSW government to intervene after the council voted to keep a remote Byron Bay beach optional of clothing. Councillor Paul Spooner said the decision to keep the clothing optional declaration at Tyagarah Beach showed the council was "not listening" to locals. Locals protested outside Byron Shire Council for the clothing optional declaration removed from Tyagarah Beach. Some locals say in the past few years the beach has been taken over by a "minority" who engage in lewd behaviour and should be shut down, while other locals believe the beach can be cleaned up to be enjoyed by everyone. Many locals want Tyagarah Beach's clothing-optional status removed, while others say work can be done to clean up behaviour on the beach.
