‘When one leg’s on one side of the fence and the other leg is on the other side, you end up sitting on it.’

The proposed upgrade to the tower at 8 Acacia Street has drawn strong objections from many locals living and working nearby, as well as 5G opponents across the Shire.
But Byron Council’s feedback to Telstra on the issue was more about fence-sitting than fighting for a cause.
