As Fast Buck$ said so eloquently (Echo June 10), ‘the aesthetics of street furniture is no trivial matter’.
Therefore I would like to know, and understand, the reason for the giant grey box that has quietly arisen adjacent to the crossing and roundabout on Lawson St, Byron Bay. This ugly installation has been placed in the most prime position in town. It not only blocks street view, but has also taken space away from the uplifting street entertainers and their onlookers, who used to enjoy that central part of town.
I assume this anonymous eyesore is some kind of ‘electrical’ fit-out , and if so, why is it not underground?
This is just another example of council/utilities not caring a less about the aesthetics of our ‘individualist’ and charming town.
