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.

I write on behalf of the committee of management of the Byron Bay Community Association (BBCA) to publicly recognise and thank Don Page for his contribution to the Byron Community Centre, and for his tireless work for the Byron Bay community.

Don Page provided great support when the community association sought to rebuild the dilapidated community centre into a first class facility for our community. Despite the many pressures of his public role he was always interested and concerned about not just the community centre’s issues but also the welfare and issues of the Byron community.

David Sweet, President, BBCA
