The free parking on Butler Street Reserve is killing the Byron Community Market.

Last Sunday an unprecedented amount of dust covered the stock the stallholders were trying to sell.

The grass is almost gone from the Recreational Reserve and rubbish, broken glass and human waste are scattered on the sites people are supposed to work on with their families.

It is hard to see who are the masters Byron Council are serving. It is obviously not the environment, the residents, or the stallholders. Why not use the railway line, disused for almost two decades, as parking instead of ruining lives and businesses?
