Paddlers taking part in a protest against the development of West Byron (pic Jeff Dawson)

More than 100 people paddled up Belongil Creek yesterday as a protest against the planned development of West Byron.

The paddle aimed to highlight potential impacts on water quality of the Belongil Creek and the integrity of the Cumbebin Swamp Nature Reserve, and hence the Cape Byron Marine Park/Pacific Ocean.

Organisers said the action aimed to raise consciousness of the geography and how West Byron interrelates with the Belongil Creek system, which is also relative to the health of the Cumbebin Swamp Reserve and Byron Bay generally.
