In Dailan Pugh’s excellent summary of the horrendous plans currently on exhibition for the development of the West Byron Bay Urban Release Area DCP, he urges us to contact minister Don Page.

Don, in turn, recommends we send our submissions in to the director of planning and infrastructure – [email protected] – and, as we have only until the end of the month and the proposed development is such a terrifying prospect, I would urge all residents to get on with it; the actual planner is apparently Fera Taschner.
