The recent corporate party with marquees on Main Beach Byron Bay was applauded by Paul Waters as ‘well organised’.
Contrary to assurances given, concerned readers should know that this event required no environmental impact statement and that 150 plus party-goers were not serviced by portaloos but rather signs directing them towards toilets 300 m from the site.
With plentiful absorbent sand and privacy of darkness only steps away from the marquees where considerable amounts of alcohol were consumed, surely this is not thoughtful and responsible waste management?
There are a number of outstanding environmental and social issues, not to mention possible contravention of council’s own by-laws, raised by this large event and the public should continue to question its suitability.
