Asren Pugh, Byron Bay
There has been some discussion in The Echo over the last few weeks about Labor’s opposition to the West Byron megadevelopment. It is worth making Labor’s position clear – I and and Labor are 100 per cent opposed.
We have stood with the community at the rallies through town, at protests on Ewingsdale Road, and made public submissions at the Joint Regional Planning Panel meeting. I will continue to stand with the community against West Byron.
This fight demonstrates the importance of having a progressive local representative in government who will speak up and fight for our community.
It should be made very clear that if Labor were elected at the last state election then West Byron would not be happening. We would have totally reversed the rezoning of the land and stopped West Byron dead.
