With Byron Bay poised to become an Atlantis by 2050, it’s nonsensical to now proceed with the West Byron residential development.
Instead we need to start thinking in terms of a major inland retreat to regions where our children won’t be touched by rising sea levels.
Let’s save all those valuable resources and commit them to create a purpose-built town that will incorporate all the necessary elements for low impact living.
I propose to call this eco-town ‘New Byron’ and suggest it be sited in the Bangalow region, sited 40 metres or more above current sea levels and probably safe from the ocean for the next couple of centuries.
