Dailan Pugh, Byron Bay

Yet again we need a good community turnout at the Northern Regional Planning Panel’s (NRPP) decision on Villaworld’s component of the West Byron development on Monday April 8 at 3 pm at the Byron Community Centre.

One of the criteria the panel has to consider is whether it is in the public interest. Through submissions, rallies and packed panel meetings the community has demonstrated that they do not want West Byron. Now we need to show the panel one more time.

Our fate could be decided if the panel decides to approve Villaworld’s DA on the April 8.

As we did with the local landholder’s development application, we need to convince them that the community does not want a Villaworld in Byron Bay.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.
