Byron resort delayed further

By MEGAN KINNINMENT

THERE seems to be no end to retail giant Gerry Harvey's woes with Byron Shire Council, with the council again delaying approval of his $50 million Byron at Byron resort.

Last week, Mr Harvey announced he had pulled the 92apartment resort off the market amid reports of cost blowouts and approval delays with the council.

This week, on staff advice, the council again delayed approval on a plan to re-use grey water in the toilets of the resort's apartments.

The council has asked for staff to report back on claims the plan would pose 'an unacceptable risk to public health' and did not fit in with the Byron local environmental plan.

The Department of Health also advised the council not to support the proposal for re-

using grey water for flushing toilets ? although a similar proposal has been approved for the redevelopment of the Great Northern Hotel, owned by Tom Mooney.

Staff recommended Mr Harvey would be better off using harvested rainwater in the toilets instead.
