Time to Get Real: Byron Markets Must Relocate
THE BYRON BAY markets have outgrown their current location and now is the time to plan a seamless relocation.
And the only viable option is what we have dubbed the Michie Plan.
Byron Bay local David Michie has cast an unjaundiced eye of the issue and has offered the best solution, or at least the best starting point for discussion.
There’s no need for rush and panic… and nothing to be gained by ranting and raving.
Currently the Markets are still under control of the Byron Bay Community Centre who have done a sterling job in market management.
The Community Centre still has 4 years remaining in its contract.
But the time to plan the Markets’ relocation is now.
The Michie Plan is to relocate the Markets to the centre of Byron Bay CBD in and around the Railway Park precinct.
It involves various minor modifications to the railway and surrounds, and David has produced a wealth of maps, plans and solutions to address any perceived problems with the relocation.
Forget the Cavanbah Sports centre. Forget Sandhills. Forget leaving the markets where they are.
The Michie Plan is the only option.
