Plans to increase building heights in Byron CBD may be shelved

Byron Council’s controversial plan to increase building height limits on a block in the centre of Byron Bay looks set to be abandoned at this week’s planning meeting.

The picture of a beaming Tweed Shire councillor Warren Polglase playing kissy-kissy with a Moreton Bay Bug on the front page of one of your rival publications last weekend appears to have exposed a far more invasive bug in Cr Polglase’s personal software.

As most Tweed residents would remember, he was one of the most vociferous opponents of the Chinderah Bug Farm when it was originally proposed.

To safeguard further Council decisions on behalf of the community, I suggest Tweed Council’s IT officer should scan all councillors for invasive, memory-wiping malware before every Council meeting.

Jeremy Cornford, Kingscliff
