Duncan Dey, Byron shire councillor. Byron Shire Council’s public transport system is failing. Proposals to double the car lanes into Byron may appear to help but experience with all road expansion programs shows that, once the new capacity is ‘discovered’, it moves the congestion to where the upgrade finishes and compounds it as well.

Is there a sustainable future for Byron Bay?

Ian Oelrichs OAM, Fellow, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, Coopers Shoot. We must not allow intemperate decisions by a few people to put Byron Bay’s sustainable future at risk.
