WTF is going on with Byron Council? The two most avid council watchers, Hans Lovejoy and Fast Buck$, have negative things to say about our council. Buck$ says Council is just incompetent, whereas Hans says that ‘Council is in the pockets of the developers’.
Well what comes from the pockets of developers? $$$ and the death of Byron by a thousand cut$.
Now we have the unbelievable situation of environmentalists blockading the Byron bypass from our Greens council. This plus Mercato, the development next door, the new monster house overshadowing its neighbour at Brunswick, 7,000 illegal Airbnbs putting legal ratepaying operators out of business.
We gave Council a resounding mandate to stop over-development after the Rose Wanchap disaster. Well she will be laughing now.
And don’t get me started on the Ballina engineering department laughing at Byron’s fuckups. Roundabouts way over budget and time, when Ballina builds their roundabouts on time and within budget!
Having the rural road drains uncleared, water running over roads washing out embankments, closing roads for months and costing a fortune. Need I go on?
We really need some real green environmentalists back on Council. Please Jan, Ian, Duncan, Bateson, Dean Jeffries, the ER crew, Dudley… Let’s have some true candidates in our next election.
