Want to stop West Byron? Get your submission in

If you love Byron Shire and call it home, make a submission opposing the West Byron mega developments.

A high number of submissions will make a difference.

If you’ve never done a submission before, now is the time to experience being part of a caring activist community.

It’s easy to do and will only take about 10 minutes.

It’s best to add your own personal points about how you feel and how it will affect you. We need to speak up for the environment, it’s our role to protect and preserve what’s precious and voiceless.

There’s information available on the Byron Residents Group and Protect Byron websites.

Don’t let the opportunity pass and have regrets later, your action now can make a difference and together we can stop our future being destroyed.

Jan Barham, Byron shire

[The ‘West Byron’ DA is on extended exhibition with submissions accepted until 29 March]

  1. James McCready says:

    I oppose West Byron Development proposal for several reasons:
    Environmental, the land of the proposed development is too sensitive and vulnerable to adequately survive this proposed development.

    Infrastructure, the town is barely coping with the current population and weekly visitors, more traffic will create an unnecessary burden on an already overburdened town.

    Social, the increase in population will not improve the already challenged social fibre of the community.

    Well where is a link to the petitions fools?

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
