Matthew Hartley, Byron Bay
A sharp-eyed observer sent me a link to a paywalled article advancing the conversion of the Belongil Estuary into a Gold Coast style canal development.
Make no mistake, the newly approved concrete and tile complex on Ewingsdale Road will create major flooding, and the proposal to mitigate it will involve concrete and canals.
Citizens should be aware that our so-called Green mayor who has been out and about speaking in favor of this monstrous environmental abuse is serving to facilitate a canal development, the environmental consequences of which will be horrific, and the social consequences appalling.
Remember, this is the mayor who has repeatedly waived planning limits and environmental conditions for chosen developers. A mayor who flaps his jaw endlessly, but whose actions speak far louder than his words.
