WEATHER permitting, Byron Bay Pool will reopen on Monday with repairs to damage from the recent wild weather almost complete.

The pool's pump house building sustained structural damage from water and wind during the Australia Day long weekend storm.

Council's property and contracts manager, Trish Kirkland, said the attached Fishheads kiosk/café building also needed a complete rewire, replastering and roof repairs after also sustaining water damage.

"Whilst the majority of the repair work will be claimed under insurance, the total cost is estimated at around $80,000," Ms Kirkland said.

Meanwhile, sporting fields throughout the Shire remain closed after two very wet months.

Community Infrastructure executive manager, Phil Holloway, said council staff had struggled to maintain the fields due to the wet weather.

"Even mowing the sports fields in between rain events has proved challenging. If we go in and mow straight after the rain, we risk doing more damage to the fields," Mr Holloway said.

Final maintenance works on the trouble-plagued northern fields at the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex (BRSCC), including marking and mowing, cannot be completed until the weather lifts.
