Regarding your article Byron council considers $34m seawall for Belongil.
The big picture is being ignored by the pro-development councillors here.
There are three factors that will be working against this:
1) the groynes/ seawall
2) the West Byron development will have an impact upstream on Belongil Creek and estuary mouth
3) when Elements action their plan to build a protective wall within the estuary mouth to prevent further erosion of their property, you’ll have one almighty unpredictable mess – what a legacy for my kids!
Nature cannot be controlled nor circumvented by man, no matter how large his ego. Working within nature’s constraints is the only sensible option. The precautionary principal is our only hope.
