A very good move by MLC and former mayor, Jan Barham, to have ICAC investigate the referral of a decision on West Byron to State Govt; let’s hope they find fault with the process.
As a councillor in the 90s, I remember site inspections of the area under the guidance of council’s (very competent) director of strategic planning at the time and it was quite clear that only very small sections of the site were suitable for development; the scale of the current proposal is both mystifying and horrific !
Thanks to Jan for maintaining her interest in the shire and thanks also for her many significant achievements while she was mayor, the most obvious are the new library and the sports complex. I was really pleased to hear how well-used and therefore successful the complex is now proving after all the initial criticism. I hope Jan’s name appears somewhere in there; if not, it’s time council rectified the omission.
