I don’t find your recent Q&A over West Byron development concerns reassuring.
Byron Shire Council has been severely compromised in trying to deal with this development as the state government. gave approval without, I’d suggest, any idea of the reality on the ground.
I initially thought this DA was someone’s fantasy as I can’t see any way of remediating the traffic situation and your Q&A doesn’t mention traffic at all.
Like the many opponents of the West Byron development as a whole, I have many more objections than just unmanageable traffic but, as I see it, this should have knocked it back at the beginning.
Way back when I was a councillor, we assessed this land for development potential and found it very limited for all the reasons the Byron Community Group have pointed out.
The traffic situation was bad then and of course is now much worse; no bypass can do much – if anything – to relieve it.
I hope everyone will send in their objections to the DCP and, again, to the whole concept of the development. (Contact the Byron Residents Group for help.)
