Ann Tiernan, Suffolk Park
I strongly disagree with Council’s position stated in last week’s Echo that ‘The sand (at Clarkes Beach) will come back, but it could take some time’.
Having lived in Byron Bay for forty-seven years I’ve seen the sand return to the beach less and less each year. In late 1930 to 1940 my family camped at The Pass each Christmas, and to reach the water we walked across the dunes, which were level to the present day caravan park.
The photo on the rightshows Main Beach in the ’50s and the parking lot was just behind the fence. Where has all that sand gone?
