Sue Taylor, Bangalow
While I’m not a member, it is heartening to hear the Bangalow Chamber of Commerce has reformed with a new committee that will represent the business community of Bangalow.
It seems obvious that supporting Bangalow’s businesses would go hand in hand with protecting the charm and character of the town. After all – it is this charm and character that attracts both visitors and locals to the town, into the little shops and cafes as well as enjoying our community markets.
Unfortunately Bangalow is facing enormous pressure from developers.
For Bangalow to remain special residents in town and in the greater Bangalow area, as well as our business community, will need to work together to fend off inappropriate development.
Development that is oversized, out of character, destroys our open rural landscape or attracts more truck movements through the centre of town has no place in a vibrant Bangalow.
Congratulations to the new Chamber executive.
