THE Foreshore Protection Group says it was taking a stand against the aggressive tactics employed by the management of a Brunswick Heads caravan park when it removed barricades this week and dumped them in front of Byron Shire Council's headquarters.

On Wednesday night the group removed the plastic barricades erected by North Coast Holiday Parks staff across Riverside Crescent at Ferry Reserve Caravan Park.

It is part of the group's ongoing campaign against what members says are local park's managements attempts to block access to publicly-owned land.

Byron Shire Council acting general manager Phil Holloway said council staff returned the barricades to the park management.

Group spokeswoman Michele Grant said the barricades were "provocative and inappropriate at this crucial point, when land managers and decision-makers are in discussions and negotiating new park boundaries".

In August, the council adopted new license renewal agreements with North Coast Holiday Parks which propose new boundaries for Ferry Reserve, Massey Greene, and the The Terrace caravan parks in the town.

Despite this, Ms Grant said park management had undertaken new works on unlicensed land including the erection of barriers on Riverside Cres, roadworks on Marine Park land at Massey Greene and a concrete apron laid at a toilet block in Terrace Park..

The Northern Star has approached the caravan park's management for comment.
