If the facts in The Echo article (June 19) on the Employment Land Strategy (ELS) are correct either Byron Shire Council staff should ‘show cause’ and public submissions should be extended – ie Council’s consideration deferred – or the minister should sack the council and appoint an administrator.
For the Saddle Road land to be included after public submissions closed is totally unacceptable.
For some time now, Byron Shire Council has been ‘the’ classic example of democracy in Australia. This project smacks of ‘insular bureaucracy’. In Byron Shire this is horrific and very concerning.
