Dead zone

Liz Friend, Ocean Shores

Every time I walk upstairs in the Mercato Building above ByrWoolies, it’s like a dead zone. So a proposal for a 146 room hotel, function centre and retail premises, when we can’t even draw enough people to the current retail premises, seems absurd.

Now we’re talking about another development opportunity next to where the old Woolies is, which seems even more absurd.

Byron Council’s willingness to turn Byron into a city-scape will ruin the town forever.

How to get rid of more current residents, ruin current small business and destroy what was once such a beautiful town… in three easy steps.

We have a so-called Green council? I don’t think so.
