Re the bypass, sorry, third main street for Byron Bay. Jan Barham’s article, which she paid for herself, is an indictment of this Greens-dominated Council’s handling of this very important environmental matter.
The fact that there is only a relatively small amount of rain forest involved makes me want to shout, ‘Hey! There’s a little bit left of what used to cover the whole area!’
We should be scrambling to save what is left, not trashing it to make way for the mighty motor vehicle. Imagine being able to add ‘Local Rainforest Walk’ to the list of things to do in Bryon Bay?
And what is this bio-banking bullshit? WTF is that about? Sounds like what developers would try on, not our elected Greens councillors, who were put here to stop this kind of travesty, not push it!
So when the ‘protectors’ stand in front of the bulldozers this week where will our Greens councillors be? Standing with those protecting our environment or standing behind the police as they drag away the good guys?
