In the spirit of public interest I‘m raising questions around the Byron bypass and bus station.
The bus interchange location and development keeps changing, and with the recent discovery of an Aboriginal midden, will Byron Council uphold its stated heritage commitments to First Nations People? The Byron Environment Centre (BEC) was accepted in Court, as a protective party of the Arakwal Native Title Claim, while Arakwal Native Title was nullified by Byron Council to make way for these roadworks.
What remedies does Byron Council propose?
Furthermore, what remedies does Byron Council have for the Butler Street community to address: 1) Destruction of Heritage zoning? 2) Lack of a clean air policy prior to development of the bypass and bus interchange?
