There is a new drug found sweeping the streets of Byron. I thought it very strange knowing a little about real estate investing, and the profitability of following the federal governments movements.
To see the millions being spent on the new hospital, the new recreation grounds and The Farm.
Next will be The Byron Bypass and the real estate boom will follow, once the West Byron Development seed is planted, that will open the flood gates to every farm-land owner in the swamp lands optioning off their inheritance to developers and sub developers.
Some families might think it’s time to cash in, indeed some politicians may see it like that as well. Meanwhile everyone I’ve spoken to doesn’t want to see Byron become the next Noosa, or even the Gold Coast for that matter.
We would all do well to remember the most dangerous drug that’s being pushed on our youth in the street, no I’m not talking about weeds. But SFN.
SFN has been flowing steadily and there has been almost zero opposition to it.
Everyone almost always loves it, but no one see’s the consequences until it’s too late.
SNF disables our youth and make’s them a dependent for life.
So what is SFN?
The idea that you can get Something For Nothing, or SFN.
Where was the boycot for the sports centre and the hospital? I’m ashamed that I’ve been too busy Self Styling my Hero’s Journey to be present and aware of the gradual shift and general buttering that’s been going on, and I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not perfect either, I’m addicted to the CANI drug. (Constant And Never-ending Improvement)
So if we don’t kick the habit in a serious way soon. The environmental effluent and waste treatment facilities will have to be upgraded, but when it does there will be no logical protest to make to counter reciprocity to the effects of the SFN drug sweeping the streets of the Byron shire today.
How can I Say no to West Byron?

Oh I hope that is not a rhetorical question! there are many logical reasons why effluent and wastewater fixes are important: they are most likely to severely constraint and alter any development footprints. There is also important information from academic surrveys and studies to spread around that the standard line ” more development =more rates collected” is acutally untrue. The only genuine improvement for towns and council rates is in the diversification and upskilling of the enterprises and local businesses.
