Byron’s new road: the good and not so

After more than 30 years of talk, debate, disagreements, tears and political gridlock, Byron Bay has a new road to divert traffic from the CBD to the southern end of town.

John Lazarus, convenor, Byron Environment Centre

While Splendour is free to hold whatever working-group meetings it wishes, the consent for their proposed development at Yelgun is not in place. The North Byron Parklands development proposal is currently before the federal government awaiting assessment under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC No.2012/6474).

While NSW premier Barry ‘King Canute’ O’Farrell has used the residue of the abandoned 3A legislation as an axe to cut through NSW’s legal and community standards, we await completion of the federal government’s consideration of this referral under the EPBC Act to know whether there is any legal consent for this proposed development.
