There is a vast tract of open land on the way into Byron. Private land has been resumed for public purposes before. Why can’t this be resumed for a bypass?
The contractor who wants to build massive numbers of houses on that block says that they will provide a bypass if the development is approved but isn’t that just bribery? It’s also obfuscation.
It is pretty clear that Byron can’t support massive numbers of houses there because of the pressures it will put on the Byron township and council finances.
Surely both the governments can assist with building a bypass, the resumption of land, and the building of wetland-sensitive corridors, considering the amount they spend on attracting tourists into this region?
