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.

Rural landowners throughout NSW should now be mentally arming and mobilising themselves against the impending threat of a new LLS (Local Land Services) rate notice.

There is no legal or constitutional basis in Australia to legislate for such mandatory payments from a certain class of people or their properties. Like all the concocted scams in society and the internet, this demand for money is fraudulent.

Do not be conned, cajoled or court-martialled into paying for some speculative government services that you have never required or received.

Like me and now many others, do not pay, complain to the issuing authority and the DPI Minister, and fight. But don’t comply with court orders. I’ve had six! My legal costs over 33 years? Still south of $300. Theirs? Conservatively 13 grand – now unrecoverable.
