How our community will look in 10 years time largely depends on the success, or not, of the pro development lobby in pushing through, in great haste, before the local elections, radical changes which will transform Byron from a charming seaside town to a continuation of of the Gold Coast sprawl.

I wish to applaud he dedicated selfless service by these four Byron councillors, namely Duncan, Paul, Basil and Simon. They relentlessly turn up for every council meeting knowing they will be defeated by this a pro-development clique.

They deliver intelligent, thoughtful, speeches displaying integrity and good planning for our shires future In the face of united opposition from a develop at any cost lobby on Byron Shire Council.

Most people in the community want the council to follow the charter of good planning and community consultation which these four so do in true service to the public.
