Geoff Bensley, Byron Bay with Love
How many holiday let homes can you have in your street? At the moment it could be the whole street. My parents who have lived in their home since 1958 in Byron Bay are slowly getting surrounded by these soulless buildings.
The sad thing is that the older generation need permanent neighbours to ‘have a chat over the fence with’.
Send letters or emails to your councillors and Byron Shire Council. We don’t want our residential streets full of ‘tourist activity’ homes. It is not a legal activity in residential zones as per the judgment from the court case in 2003 Parks V Byron Shire Council.
Let’s help save our loss of amenity for our community.
